2022 Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention and

Wisconsin Water Week Resources and Support

Background: For over thirty years, the Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention has been an annual gathering for those interested in lakes and rivers. Meeting together to share research, management options, and educational strategies, convention participants gain new ideas and a renewed support network.

The 2022 in-person Convention will be part of the 2nd annual Wisconsin Water Week, which brings awareness to all things water. The 2022 theme is “Protecting What We Love, For The Future”.

For over thirty years, the Wisconsin Lakes and

Rivers Convention has been an annual gathering

of lake and river lovers of all stripes: Lake and

River Stewards, Lake Leaders, Lake and River

Professionals, and the members of the Wisconsin

Lakes Partnership. Meeting together to share research,

management options, and educational strategies, convention

participants gain new ideas and a renewed support network. This year, the event has gone virtual and has grown to be the first ever Wisconsin Water Week. Because students are such important water stakeholders, we invite them to join this network by participating in the essay contest.

Science is not a subject you took in school, it’s life. We are wrapped by it, in it, with it. And one’s science literacy should never be viewed as a disposable dimension of one’s mind – not in this, the 21st century, where the engines of tomorrow’s economies will derive from wise investments and innovations in science and technology.
