Riverway Celebration Announced for November 10th

MUSCODA, WI (Ben Caxton) — A program to recognize the 30-year anniversary of the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway and Riverway Board will be held on Sunday, November 10th at the Vintage Brewing Company in Sauk City. Doors will open at 1:00 PM with a program beginning at 1:30 PM. Featured speakers for the program include former Governor Tommy G. Thompson, who signed the legislation that created the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway and Riverway Board. Mark Cupp, Riverway Board Executive Director says the event is intended to recognize the accomplishments of the Riverway project over the past three decades and to thank landowners and local residents who have “participated in the success of the Riverway.” The Lower Wisconsin State Riverway was created in 1989 to protect and preserve the scenic beauty and natural character of the lower Wisconsin River valley. The project encompasses nearly 100,000 acres of public and private lands along the final 92 miles of the Wisconsin River. The Riverway begins below the last dam on the river at Prairie du Sac and extends to the confluence with the Mississippi River near Prairie du Chien. Light refreshments will be served during the event. There is no cost to attend the event, but donations will be welcomed to help defray costs.
