Sea Grant staff active in Wisconsin Water Week

Wisconsin Water Week—March 8 to 12—is almost upon us, and this year’s theme is “Navigating in Turbulent Times.” A virtual conference organized by the Wisconsin Lakes Partnership will explore many facets of this precious resource and give attendees a chance to network with others interested in water.

Several Wisconsin Sea Grant staff and fellows are involved as presenters, virtual exhibitors or session organizers. To help you take advantage of Sea Grant-connected offerings during Wisconsin Water Week, we’ve pulled together the handy list below.

To learn more about the conference, you can watch a teaser video on YouTube, or view the agenda and registration link.
