Education Collaboration Advocacy
We are so proud of this booklet! Doing
the Right Thing for Our Lakes and Rivers
was produced by our working Education Committee. Each article was written by
an OCLRA member, another lent his
services as editor and found the graphic designer that brought it to life. In a time when calls for property rights have
silenced sensible regulations for the protection of our waters, property owners appreciate the information provided in this collection of essays.
Read all of the essays and download them as you wish on the DO THE RIGHT THING page.
The Wisconsin Lakes Partnership Convention is the biggest and best collaborative event around! The Wisconsin DNR, The UW Extension and Wisconsin Lakes put on three days of speakers, exhibits, workshops, meals and opportunities to meet others that are devoted to Lakes and the efforts to protect them. Link here to registration materials,
the Agenda, speaker bios, and information about the photo contest.
Keynote speaker will be Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, a marine biologist who has synthesized much of the science on this topic in his 2015 best selling book Blue Mind.
Last week, February 27 and March 1 and 2, these gentlemen held Public Hearings on
the proposed Shoreland Protection Ordinance for Oneida County. On March 15, they will finalize the Ordinance, making adjustments based on what they heard from you, your OCLRA Board, and other interested citizens. Scott Holewinski, Billy Fried, Dave Hintz, Jack Sorensen and Mike Timmons
know what we want. Their challenge is to
Do the Right Thing for the shorelands of Oneida County.
