DNR asking recreators in the Little Plover River Fisheries Area to be aware of UW-Stevens Point students working on watershed enhancement activities
For the City Times
STEVENS POINT — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is asking for the public’s cooperation for a project the department is conducting with UW-Stevens Point students in the Little Plover River Fisheries Area (LPRFA).
Beginning Nov. 12, students, faculty and DNR personnel will be working in the area on watershed restoration enhancement activities. The largest group will be working from Nov. 12-15.
Hunters, hikers, bird watchers and others recreating in the LPRFA are asked to be aware that there will be groups present in the area, and they may wish to avoid the LPRFA until after November 15.
The fisheries area is located on both sides of I-39 near the village of Plover. The purpose of the DNR project is to implement forestry and habitat management activities in areas adjacent to the Little Plover River, and to help restore the river and adjacent wetlands.
