Beach management in 2020 has been anything but usual. A webinar on Aug. 12 offers the opportunity for beach managers and outdoor recreation professionals to share how COVID-19 has impacted their jobs on state and local levels, followed by a question-and-answer session.

The event is organized by the Wisconsin Coastal Beaches Working Group, which was organized in 2015 for professionals, researchers and funders involved in managing and improving Wisconsin’s Great Lakes beaches.

Webinar presenters include Ryan Wozniak, Wisconsin Department of Health Services; Holly Glainyk, Waukesha County Parks; and Sara Hudson, City of Ashland Parks and Recreation. To sign up for the webinar, please visit the Eventbrite page.

Interested in joining the working group? Membership is open to anyone involved in issues related to the management, safety or quality of coastal beaches in Wisconsin. Subscribe to the listserv by sending an email to join-wicoastalbeaches@lists.wisc.edu.
