Event Description

Join Wisconsin Wetlands Association and Tom Dawson, long-time Public Intervenor, in a very special presentation about the origin and history of Wisconsin's Public Intervenors Office. We'll discuss the importance of this office in protecting wetlands as Wisconsin's wetland policy evolved in the 1970's and 1980's.


Wisconsin's Office of Public Intervenor

Housed within the Department of Justice, Wisconsin's Public Intervenor Office was created in 1967 to act as an independent watchdog agency charged with intervening when necessary to protect public rights related to water and other natural resources. WWA worked closely with this office for many years, especially intervenors Tom Dawson and Kathleen Faulk. The office was abolished in the late 1990's.
