Wisconsin Water Week 2021 - Registration Now Open!
Date and Time:
Monday, March 8, 2021, 8:00am to Friday, March 12, 2021, 4:00pm
The Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Partnership invites you to join us for the first-ever Wisconsin Water Week, a virtual event that will take place March 8-12, 2021.
The agendas for the first three days of Wisconsin Water Week will focus on major aspects of Wisconsin’s water system. Monday will emphasize “Water Cycles,” including groundwater and climate, the two largest but mostly invisible pieces of our shared water inheritance. Tuesday will explore “Water Bodies,” delving into the science of monitoring lakes, rivers, wetlands, and watersheds and evaluating their health. Wednesday will focus on “Water Actions,” featuring examples and stories from the field that demonstrate how people and communities are tackling water challenges. Our theme for 2021 is “Navigating in Turbulent Times” and we will be looking to spotlight innovative ways that water groups are continuing to advance their work in the face of unprecedented challenges.
Thursday’s programming will be built around the major watersheds in Wisconsin through nearly a dozen simultaneous, place-based, one-day conferences. Drawing on the Red Cedar Basin Conference’s ten years of growing success, numerous additional watersheds throughout Wisconsin will be organizing Thursday agendas that address the issues and concerns most relevant in their specific region.
The week concludes on Friday with a menu of smaller local events and meetings that draw upon the week’s content to outline action plans for spring and summer 2021. Depending on the public health circumstances and the size of local gatherings, some of these may be held in person.
