The Protect Wisconsin Waterways crew had a great time at the Bark River Family Fun Float on Saturday, August 11! Here, our representatives engaged with citizens and families that shared a common interest in our waterways, specifically the Bark River. We also used this event as a way to promote our Protect WI Waterways Sweep which was on September 8. We gave them Fort Atkinson-specific flyers, so they knew where to go for the event. We also handed out pamphlets and pens. Overall, the event was successful, and we were able to travel along the Bark River with event attendees. We explained our mission and simple things they can do to protect our waterways Erosion could be seen along the shore and on a few trees from when the water was 3 ft higher.
