Lakes & Streams

Wisconsin’s waterways and the Public Trust Doctrine. The Public Trust Doctrine is simply the idea that no one person can claim ownership over the bounty of the lakes and streams… that these are gifts to be enjoyed and cherished by all. WGF’s analyses and educational materials are developed by the Public Trust and Wetlands Work Group.
