A community of people passionate about water education, outreach, and research in Wisconsin will be on hand for the launch of the new Wisconsin Water Thinkers Network this month. Sixty water educators, stewards, faith leaders, researchers and business representatives from throughout the state will attend the event to be held on March 15 in Stevens Point.
The Wisconsin Water Thinkers Network is supported by the University of Wisconsin-Extension, the Wisconsin Environmental Education Foundation and ThinkWater, with financial support from the Wisconsin Environmental Education Board. ThinkWater (www.thinkwater.us), based at the University of Wisconsin-Extension, is funded by the US Department of Agriculture’s National Institute for Agriculture with the goal of applying systems thinking to complex water-related issues in the United States. ThinkWater is developing a model in Wisconsin to be used in the state and across the country.
