Our Invasive Species Banquet is A Memory!
WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME!
Highlights from the 2017 Invasive Species Awards Banquet.
About 70 Lake enthusiasts, Land and Water employees, and friends gathered at the 9th Annual Award Ceremony at Holiday Acres on August 17, 2017. Our guest speaker, Courtney Wright, from the Northwoods Wildlife Center in Minocqua, presented an excellent program on Human Relationships with Wildlife. Awards were presented and lots of prizes were distributed.
Oneida County is located in Northern Wisconsin. Our county has over 1,100+ lakes and rivers and our water resources are a large part of our lifestyle. For this reason an Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) program was developed in 2007 to protect our waterways from the threat of AIS. Our AIS team is an integral part of the Oneida County Land & Water Conservation Department and consists of an AIS Coordinator (Stephanie Boismenue), a Lead Project Assistant and two Project Assistants. Our program focuses on educational outreach, technical assistance, and AIS management.
