2022 Annual 6-County Event

Northwoods lake leaders and lake lovers joined together at Nicolet College in Rhinelander on July 15, 2022 to discuss current lake protection issues. Over 120 attendees came from Vilas, Oneida, Lincoln, Iron, Forest and Langlade counties for the in-person event.

This year’s theme centered upon our northern lakes’ capacity to withstand rising developmental and recreational pressures. Discussed were changing trends in short-term tourist rooming houses, invasive species, access/viewing corridors, wake boating, and their impacts upon lake health and traditional shoreland neighborhoods.

The annual 6-County Event is jointly sponsored by the Vilas and the Oneida County Lakes and Rivers Associations.
