UniverCity Year Koshkonong Creek

The City of Sun Prairie, Towns of Deerfield and Cottage Grove and the nonprofit Friends of Koshkonong Creek with support from Badger Farms are partnering with UniverCity Year from 2021-2024 to improve the Koshkonong Creek. This 36-mile creek runs from the City of Sun Prairie to Lake Koshkonong and requires upgrades and analysis as changes in development and the climate alter the watershed. The group hopes to study the creek and plan for its future.
