On 16 September, the Clean Bay Backers welcomed over one hundred NE Wisconsin legislators, local officials and community leaders to learn about Green Bay's "dead zone," the PCB cleanup, the Cat Island Chain Restoration and riverfront revitalization. Nearly a dozen local experts guided the tour aboard the Foxy Lady regarding efforts to reduce runoff pollution, clean up toxins, enhance fish and wildlife habitat, and improve economic benefits of the Fox River and Green Bay.
The Clean Bay Backers is the Citizen Advisory Committee to the WI Department of Natural Resources for the Lower Green Bay and Fox River Area of Concern. Members included Patricia Finder-Stone, Dotty Juengst and Kathy LeFavre from LWV-GGB. We are proud that Finder-Stone also represented the League of Women Voters Lake Michigan Region.
