Don’t miss this special opportunity to see a sneak-peek video of Wisconsin Public Television’s new special, Wisconsin Water From the Air, to premiere later this year. It will take viewers above, atop, and along state waterways that inspire reflection, wonder, and adventure. From the routes that the Wisconsin, Mississippi, and St. Croix Rivers carve through the state’s landscape to the wide-stretching shores of Lake Michigan, celebrate the waterways that shape Wisconsin.

Also learn from a UW–Madison expert in the state’s beautiful Northwoods. James Hurley, director of the UW-Madison’s Aquatic Sciences Center, has studied the presence of organic compounds in lakes and rivers, with a focus on mercury and algae toxins.
