In 2014, as the Mayor for the City of Oconto, it came to my attention that a popular nature reserve within our city was inadequate to serve those with certain disabilities. Through the facilitation and assistance of Dale Mohr (UW-Extension, Oconto County) we as a collaborative worked along with the Development Corporation and Tourism Committee to inform, educate and pressure the WDNR to make changes to the site to accommodate those with disabilities. In 2016 improvements were made including viewing platform modifications, trail and bridge access, and parking lot increasing usage and safety for everyone. Thank You, Dale - for your diligence in this goal - to make sure it finally got done! Victoria Bostedt, Mayor for Oconto
