AIS in Northern Wisconsin - From the year 2012 to Spring of 2017 Lumberjack received a WI DNR grant that allowed us to employ an AIS Coordinator.  He provided educational and species management services within the service area of Forest, Langlade and Lincoln Counties.  Unfortunately the grant is very competitive and our 2017 submission was denied.  We plan to apply again in 2018.  In the meantime, our partners are helping to fill the gaps and continue some projects.  Please call the Lumberjack Administrative Office at 715-369-9886 or email   Click here to learn more about the services offered by the former AIS Program.  We hope to offer them again in the future.
