Reports and Documents
The Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership received funding to cultivate river stewardship through a series of seminars, workshops, outreach events, and paint-outs with the Water’s Edge Artists. Geographical focus was primarily on the Branch River system but also included Pine Creek in Calumet County and the streams flowing into Hika Bay in southern Manitowoc County. From the outreach established with the Friends of the Branch River, membership was increased from 90 individuals at the beginning of 2010 to 134 at the beginning of 2011. These increased membership numbers and the associated events provided greater protection of the Branch River Watershed.
