Join us at an upcoming event!
Saturday, August 21, 2021 | Snapshot Day
Volunteers needed! On August 21, join water enthusiasts around the state for Snapshot Day, a statewide search for aquatic invasive species. No experience is required and training will be provided. A variety of skills are needed from drivers, to those who can lift equipment, to photographers. Information collected by volunteers will help with statewide monitoring and response efforts. Snapshot Day is a partnership with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and UW-Extension. Sign up for more information.
Sunday, August 29, 2021 | Fools’ Flotilla
Make your grand entrance to Orton-Front Festival by floating with hundreds of other fools from Tenney Park to Yahara Place Park on the Yahara River in Madison, Wisconsin. Bring your own boat, PFDs, costumes and decorations. The more foolish the better! This is a free event, but pre-registration with a safety agreement will be required.
Friday, October 2, 2021 | Baraboo Riverfest
Celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the removal of the last dams on the Baraboo River. The dam removal established the river as the longest restored river east of the Mississippi River, and allowed for the reintroduction of lake sturgeon to the free-flowing river system. Learn more about the event or become a sponsor on the Friends of the Baraboo River website.
