Busy Evening For WI Water Rights Advocates

Can you be in two places at once this evening? Well, not precisely - - if you've got the will and good transportation.

An artists' exhibit originating in NW Wisconsin about the massive open-pit iron mine threat to the Penokee Hills near Lake Superior and the Bad River Band's wild-rice waters has its opening at 5 p.m. at Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee. Details, here.

A citizen body that advises the DNR - - The Wisconsin Conservation Congress - - is holding spring discussion and organizational meetings in every county statewide this evening beginning at 7 p.m.

The meetings are open to the public - - which is the entire point.

You can attend, vote on state DNR and conservation policy resolutions (there will be many) ranging from dogs in the wolf to expanded hunting and trapping in state parks to the mining issue to a host of others.

Of note: you can run for Congress delegate and bring your voice to full Congress sessions.

Usually these meetings are dominated by hunting, fishing and other sport-or-recreation-minded residents.
