Sturgeon Fest set for Sept. 30 at Lakeshore Park in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE - The public can join in the fun at Sturgeon Fest at Lakeshore State Park in downtown Milwaukee on Sept. 30 and be part of restoring lake sturgeon to Lake Michigan.

The family-oriented event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and features the opportunity for participants to sponsor and hand release one of the young sturgeon into the Milwaukee Harbor.

The festival is free for all ages; a donation of $10 is appreciated for sponsoring a sturgeon. Pre-register to sponsor a fish; registration closes at 2 p.m. Sept. 29, but if there are still sturgeon left, people can register at the event.

"We encourage people to come to Sturgeon Fest and experience releasing a sturgeon," says Brad Eggold, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources fisheries supervisor for the Great Lakes. "We'll be stocking about 1,100 sturgeon into Lake Michigan, which would not be possible without the cooperation of the Riveredge Nature Center and its volunteers."
