FROM THE PRESIDENT...
By Tim Kaul - Landowner
It is with great satisfaction that I am able to
introduce the first newsletter of The Ulao Creek
Partnership, Inc. (UCP). So much has taken place since December 1995, when
David Schwengel had the idea to bring people together to increase
awareness of a little creek and watershed in southeast Ozaukee County.
You will notice in this and future newsletters that
much has been accomplished, yet so much remains to be done. The results
from one study may answer some questions, but also reveal many more. As
the creek continues to flow, so do we need to continue to push on if we
are to achieve our goals. The Partnership has summarized its goals to form
its mission statement, which is to form an alliance of concerned citizens,
landowners, and public and private organizations to protect and improve
the water quality and natural habitats in the Ulao Creek watershed. We
continue to follow this mission through the newsletter by informing the
public of our activities and giving you information about Ulao Creek and
So, as you read through this and future editions of the
Ulao Whistler or visit our new website (ulaocreek.org), please have
an open mind about what we are trying to accomplish and see where you may
want to get involved with us. The Partnership’s mission is about
protecting and enhancing the watershed, but the real meaning of
Partnership is people working together for a common good. Please consider
joining us with an active membership. We can make a difference in how we
live in our environment, even in a little watershed in eastern Wisconsin.
