Yahara Lakes 101 is a series of educational events open to the public and a great chance for residents to learn more about the science behind the issues that affect our lakes. Each month we feature a different expert to make the science accessible and interesting to non-technical audiences.
The series is produced in partnership with the UW-Madison Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, with presenting sponsors First Weber Foundation and Johnson Financial Group, hosting sponsor The Edgewater, supporting sponsor National Guardian Life Insurance Company, and media partner the Isthmus.
This special edition of Yahara Lakes 101 is part of Clean Lakes Alliance's week-long Frozen Assets Festival & Fundraiser. Every year, Frozen Assets raises the profile of our lakes as one of our community's greatest assets. Since 2011, Frozen Assets has raised more than $1.1 million for our lakes.
