This program is a community based approach to transforming the Upper Milwaukee River Watershed through the engagement of the rural villages in its region. It is our hope that the CRP will inspire the residents to care about their watershed, educate them about the challenges faced by the watershed, and engage them in changing land management practices to help improve the habitat and quality of water in the watershed. The project achieves this through a series of personal engagement, adventure activities, and community-wide efforts. The Community Outreach and Water Literacy Coordinator will be a critical component in engaging and educating CRP community residents about the Milwaukee River watershed.
