The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) invites the public to participate in Wisconsin Water Week, a digital experience from March 8-12, 2021. This year’s virtual interactive event spotlights protecting and enhancing Wisconsin’s water.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from experts, grass-roots organizers and passionate water advocates. Participants can engage in discussion sessions and interactive workshops, plus enhance their network of water-focused professionals.

For more than 30 years, the Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention has been an annual gathering of water lovers of all stripes, including lake and river stewards, lake leaders, lake and river professionals and members of the Wisconsin Lakes Partnership.

Wisconsin Water Week brings together the array of people who care for our water and features content-rich presentations and discussion panels. Speakers include climate scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson and Dr. Marissa Jablonski, Executive Director of the new Freshwater Collaborative of Wisconsin at UW-Milwaukee.

Nearly 200 different presenters, including 40 DNR staff, will join the event live to share their knowledge of water, ecology, advocacy and management. You can view the full conference schedule here.

Registration for Wisconsin Water Week is open here and costs $20 per day. This event is a collaborative effort of the Wisconsin Lakes Partnership which includes the DNR, Extension Lakes and Wisconsin Lakes.
