Rock River Coalition

Zeloski Marsh, Lake Mills, WI (2004-06)

One of our past staff members was hired by the Rock River Coalition (RRC), a local non-profit, in January 2005 as Wetland Monitoring Coordinator.

He led a group of citizen scientists who monitor amphibians, birds, invertebrates, mammals, plants and water quality at a 1,700 acre muck farm in Lake Mills, WI that is being restored to a tamarack swamp and shallow ponds for shorebirds and waterfowl. The group also monitored 2,000 acres of restored and remnant wetlands in Jefferson, WI.

His group was awarded the “Wisconsin Volunteer Stream Monitoring Award- Group Effort” for 2005 by the WI-DNR.
