Wisconsin Coastal Management Program to Hold Meeting in Sturgeon Bay

The Department of Administration’s (DOA) Wisconsin Coastal Management Program will hold four free workshops around the state in July and August to discuss low water levels on Lakes Superior and Michigan, including one in Door County. These workshops will include discussion about water level data, state and local impacts of low lake levels, and the programs to help coastal communities.

“Wisconsin is home to many beautiful lakes and waterways,” said DOA Secretary Mike Huebsch. “These workshops will provide information to help protect or restore our valuable water and coastal resources for families and Wisconsinites to enjoy for generations to come.”

The workshops are free and open to the public. A workshop will be held at Crossroads at Big Creek on Thursday, Aug. 8 from 6 to 8:30 pm.


A Veterans Benefit Expo will be held Aug. 7 from noon to 6 pm at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay. Veterans and their families can learn about eligibility criteria for veterans benefits, as well as being able to apply for state and federal benefits. They can also find out about grants, education benefits and employment opportunities. For more information, visit the Wisconsin Department of Veteran Affairs website at
