Lower Green Bay & Fox River AOC on the Move

Purpose

Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve will coordinate 4 kayak events in the Lower Green Bay and Fox River Area of Concern (AOC). One event will get Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) members out of the meeting room and into the AOC. Three other events will be open to the general public. Barkhausen’s kayak program is designed to bring people closer to the water and to increase appreciation of our water resources; it’s a great way to experience the plants and animals inhabiting the coastal marshes of the West Shore.

Objective

The main objectives are to strengthen both CAC member and general citizen knowledge of issues impairing the health of the waters within our AOC and inspire citizens to accept their role as stewards of the Green Bay and the Fox River.

Outcome

One kayak event for CAC members and three kayak events for the general public will provide on-the-water learning experiences in the AOC.
