Making Connections Across Our Watersheds

Published on

Andrew Struck, director of the Ozaukee County Planning and Parks Department, will lead an interactive presentation on the department’s fish passage program, which actively reconnects existing, high quality fish and wildlife habitat throughout the Milwaukee River Watershed and direct drainage to Lake Michigan. The workshop presenters will discuss concepts of aquatic connectivity, provide a comprehensive overview of a multi-million dollar watershed-wide approach to aquatic connectivity, and engage the audience in designing for options for fish passage using successful completed projects as case-studies. This presentation was given by Andrew Struck, Director, Ozaukee County Planning and Parks Department.
