Cory Gritzmacher with Mequon Nature Preserve, Nadia Vogt with MMSD and Steve Kass with Ducks Unlimited at the ceremonial tree that marks the launch of the reforestation and wetland restoration program.

The ceremony will kick off of a project called simply the Reforestation & Wetland Restoration Program, a multi-year, multi-watershed effort to mitigate climate change in southeastern Wisconsin. It’s being led by the Metropolitan Sewerage District and Ducks Unlimited, along with what the two organizations hope is a growing list of partners.
