Representatives from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will discuss the Critical Habitat Designation Program for Lake Ripley at the upcoming Board Meeting on Oct. 17.

The meeting will start at 9 a.m. at the Oakland Town Hall.

Susan Graham and Jeanne Scherer will review the purpose and scope of work required for the designation.

The goal of delineating critical habitat sites is to formally protect sensitive areas, resource protection areas and public rights features.

These elements combine to provide regulator and management advice to the State of Wisconsin, counties, local units of government and others who hold authorities or are interested in protecting and preserving these unique habitats for future generations.

Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend the meeting.

Contact Lisa at 423-4537 or for more information.
