MADISON, Wis. - Members of the public are invited to learn more about the creation of a long-term plan for a portion of the Cherokee-Yahara River Estuary at an upcoming public meeting hosted by partner agencies on Nov. 14 in Waunakee.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources awarded a planning grant to the Dane County Land and Water Resources Department to accomplish several objectives in the estuary, including the enhancement of recreation, fishing and wildlife, water quality and vegetation, and erosion and sediment trapping.

An introduction and general background of the project will be presented at the meeting. The public then can provide input at four breakout stations staffed by representatives from Dane County, city of Madison, town of Westport, DNR and UW-Madison.

Thursday, Nov. 14
6:30 - 6:45 p.m. (Welcome and Project Background)
6:45 - 8:30 p.m. (Breakout Stations)
