The Waters of Wisconsin: Sustaining Our Aquatic Ecosystems

Every day we draw upon the waters of Wisconsin for our sustenance and housekeeping, in our work and our play, as a source of health, prosperity, and inspiration. Flowing through our remote wild lands, our farms and forests, our small towns and suburbs, as well as our cities, water connects us. Wisconsin has a long tradition of careful stewardship of our waters, but we find ourselves facing long-standing challenges and emerging threats to our water resources and aquatic ecosystems. The state of our waters reflects our sense of shared responsibility for their health. Curt Meine, Senior Fellow at the Aldo Leopold Foundation, will lead a critical discussion of how we are to sustain the waters that sustain us.
Free to the public with advance registration, this special talk is presented by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters in partnership with the Mead Public Library Foundation and with support from Wisconsin Public Radio.
