For the Tomahawk Leader

RHINELANDER – The annual Northwoods Six-County Lakes Meeting is slated for next month.

The meeting, jointly sponsored by the Oneida County Lakes and Rivers Association and the Vilas County Lakes and Rivers Association, will be held at Nicolet College, 5364 College Dr., Rhinelander, on Friday, July 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The meeting’s theme is “Protecting Our Waters: We’re All Connected.” All are welcome, and there will be no charge or registration to attend.

“Lake association leaders and members, along with the general public, will convene to learn about and discuss our interconnected water resources and our human connections to each other and to our lakes, streams, wetlands and groundwater,” a release from the Vilas County Lakes and Rivers Association said.

A committee with representatives from Forest, Iron, Langlade, Lincoln, Oneida and Vilas counties is developing plans for the meeting.

The program will include a five-member panel discussion on the connections among water resources and the people who use them, along with presentations on the impacts of climate change and drought on water resources and fisheries and PFAS in the environment.

There will also be exhibits from educational and nonprofit organizations and opportunities for networking.
