John has studied the Mukwonago River for many years, and was in our 2002 video, Glacial Refuge,The Phenomenally Diverse Mukwonago River. He will  portray the fish fauna at various locations in the streams and lakes of the Mukwonago River watershed and then explain why some parts of the watershed have extraordinary fish diversity with many sensitive and rare species and some parts don’t.

Come and meet our Outreach and Engagement Coordinator, Derek Sallmann.  We are very excited about further educational possibilities including Derek and others. Friends has a 2018 calendar of activities, hikes and paddles for you to experience. Join us in the Mukwonago River watershed diversity.

We have an amazing resource in our Mukwonago River. Partnering with landowners, land trusts, municipal and governmental partners, along with recreational users,and you we can protect the watershed, educate about its value, and make it accessible.

Member meeting after our speaker to catch up on our accomplishments in 2017, reveal a full calendar for 2018, and elect Board members.  We hope to see you there.
