2019 Wisconsin Lakes Partnership Convention & Water Action Volunteers Symposium

By CPTPComm | 10:43 AM, 03/29/2019

This year's theme, "Pay it Forward," is a popular concept. When someone does something for you, instead of paying that person back directly, you pass it on to another person instead. This practice can certainly be seen with lake and stream volunteers, professionals in natural resource management, and all those who value our precious water resources. Many of us automatically do this type of activity every day. At the 2019 Convention, we will share some of these inspiring stories of "paying it forward."
