Runner Up

Runner up – NEW Water’s Adaptive Management: Intense rain events, like from this approaching summer storm, have the potential to introduce large amounts of nutrients and sediment to waterways from unprotected land. NEW Water’s Adaptive Management alternate compliance option is working in the headwaters of Dutchman (and Ashwaubenon) Creek pictured here to install agricultural best management practices (BMPs). These implemented BMPs, namely cover crops, stream buffers and no tilling, help reduce excessive nutrients and sediment delivery to streams and improve water quality. Ben Young, NEW Water

Runner Up

Henry Schuette Park: Henry Schuette Park: City of Manitowoc, Friends of the Manitowoc River Watershed, a LNRP Partner Group. Henry Schuette Park is a public natural area park that is adjacent to the Manitowoc River, which is owned and operated by the City of Manitowoc. The Friends of the Manitowoc River Watershed formally adopted Henry Schutte Park. With over 65.17 acres (combined Upper and Lower Schuette Park), this park acts as a multi‐use facility but also provides important habitat. The Ice Age Trail runs through the park, a new kayak launch has been installed, and there is abundant access to the Manitowoc River. Henry Schuette Park is a local favorite for nature lovers and includes various wildlife communities, a community‐built playground, open air shelters, grills, a kayak launch, exercise equipment, fishing areas, and over six miles of nature and cross‐country skiing trails. LNRP drafted a restoration plan for 18 acres within Lower Henry Schuette Park in January 2020, which was formally approved by City Council. The plan includes EAB mitigation, wetland restoration, and invasive species management. – Friends of the Manitowoc River Watershed
