The wail call of the loon, with its mournful and calming howl, often signals social interactions between individuals. Loons use it to reconnect, to find each other in the fog or on a moonless night. Like the loon’s wail, we send out this annual call to water lovers everywhere to reconnect with us in Stevens Point at the annual Lakes Partnership Convention and Water Action Volunteers Symposium. We call you to connect with each other too: with fellow organization leaders, volunteer monitors, resource managers, researchers, service providers and educators. We call you to learn, to share, and to socialize. We especially call those who have never come to our event in the past. We welcome you to join our unique gathering. Together, we will create the great cacophony, the informed discussion about protecting and restoring lake health that cannot be ignored. Join us, heed the call!
This convention will again join with the Water Action Volunteers (WAV) Symposium to bring citizens and professionals together to work on not only lake matters, but expand those efforts into the watershed. As our waters do not stop at the borders of Wisconsin, neither do our partnerships. The 2018 Lakes Convention will also overlap with the annual meeting of the Society for Ecological Restoration Midwest-Great Lakes Chapter (April 20-22). Click here for details
