I am responsible for project development and management for the environmental planning and hazard mitigation programs at Bay-Lake RPC. For the past ten years, I have worked with local governments, and state and federal agencies to promote sustainable planning and smart growth initiatives throughout northeastern Wisconsin.

Why Angela Loves the Lake

I feel very fortunate to work in northeastern Wisconsin where we have over 400 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline in our region. Lake Michigan provides so much more to us than beautiful backdrops -- it brings diverse ecology, recreational and tourism opportunities, and a clean water supply. Those are just some of the reasons I love Lake Michigan.

Other Lake Projects Angela is Involved With

- Mapping environmental corridors and provide outreach on the benefits of preservation and enhancement. - Inventory of public access sites and development of a Wisconsin Lake Michigan Water Trail. - Assisting with the Door County Greenprint. - Smart Growth planning and hazard mitigation planning in coastal communities. - Conducting Beach Sanitary Surveys at Wisconsin Lake Michigan beaches.
