Volunteer Survey

Thank you for your interest in the Friends of Lake Wingra! Want to get involved? We've created the survey at the link below to take "inventory" of your possible volunteer interests. Your responses will help FoLW be certain that we have your correct contact information as well as your preferences for future contacts and activities. The survey also includes a specific question to let us know if you are NOT interested in volunteering, but would still like to receive information from our organization, so please, work through the first few questions if you'd like us to know that, too. Thank you for participating and for your support!

A report by Edgewood College graduate student Maribeth Kniffin about springs in the Lake Wingra watershed and how change to the watershed has affected their flow rates.
