Green Tier Legacy Communty: Egg Harbor, WI

Egg Harbor is making strides toward sustainability by becoming the first village to adopt the Green Tier Legacy Community Charter.

The GreenTier Legacy Communities Charter is a unique partnership between Wisconsin communities, non-profit organizations, and state agencies. We work together to assist communities in developing and implementing sustainability measures. Under the Charter, municipalities take actions and share information to achieve superior environmental stewardship by focusing on water resources management and/or sustainability practices. By collaborating, communities are able to move further, faster, toward reaching their sustainability goals.

Insights from LNRP’s Executive Director

A few moments with Jim Kettler

Here is a great look at Lakeshore Natural Resources Partnerships (LNRP), an incredible organization in our region doing many things that parallel many of Thrive’s vision.

“Our work is very much defined by our mission, which you can see right at the top of our webpage: “Cultivating community and stewardship from the ledge to the lakeshore.” We look at enhancing the quality of life in the places where we work, live, and play. Our role is helping people realize that taking ownership over the stewardship of their backyards is critical to not only them, but their children, and their children’s children.”

-Jim Kettler, Executive Director LNRP
