ABSTRACT. In 2009, the modern incarnation of large woody habitat restoration (aka. fish sticks) began in Wisconsin . Since then thousands of trees have been added to littoral zones on hundreds of lake riparian properties. This presentation will relate lessons learned in working with riparian landowners who are willing to implement fish sticks projects. From initial meetings with fisheries management, lake groups and individual property owner site evaluations to a citizen driven model of fish sticks project implementation which envisions increased habitat restoration using the Wisconsin Healthy Lakes program as the main vehicle.
