|Welcome! My name is Anne, and I am the Information & Education Specialist for the Land & Water Conservation Division. On this page you will find links to the various educational programs we offer, available media resources, special events, and other related information. In the menu at the left you will find links to individual pages for each of these topics.

We offer the public a variety of environmental education programs that cover many topics such as water quality, wildlife, habitat, wetland ecology, and forestry. The collective name for all of our environmental education programs is Teaching Outdoor Awareness & Discovery, or T.O.A.D. Visit the T.O.A.D. page for complete program descriptions and a table showing how they meet state science & environmental education standards. T.O.A.D. programs are free to the public and most are developed for school children, but they can be adapted for different age groups and settings. We also have materials available for storm drain stenciling (see link at left).
The Environmental Resource Center contains books, videos, magazines, and other media on a variety of topics including field guides and curriculum ideas for teachers. Visit the ERC page for more details and a list of what resources are available for checkout. In addition, visit "links" for other environmental education resources, exotic species, and sites for kids.
The Northwoods Journal is a summertime publication (June-September) that is distributed throughout Marinette County to inform the public about natural resource & conservation issues, outdoor recreation oportunities, area events & programs, and other related topics. Click on the link at left to see more about this publication and to view back issues.
We sponsor several annual events including the Environmental Poster Contest nd the Sand Lake Conservation Camp - see link at left for each of these events for more details. For nature and outdoor recreation opportunities, visit the Harmony Arboretum and Peshtigo Harbor Wildlife Area Trails links.
