After three virtual events, we at WICDI were thrilled to have the opportunity to organize an in-person workshop in a small-group setting this past July. For this field-based event, Community of Practice connections led us to Lincoln Township, in Bayfield County. Mark Dryer, Chairman of Lincoln, had reached out to us back in 2020 after taking an interest in our culvert database. In our conversations, we learned of the care and effort he and fellow Lincoln supervisors, road foremen and road crew members put into maintaining their culverts and securing funding for mitigation efforts. Mark graciously offered to host us and a small group of participants in his and his wife Pam’s backyard so that we could learn more from them, while sharing our culvert database and collection tools.Continue reading “Double Feature: WICDI’s Summer In-Person and Virtual Workshops, Part 1”
