Help the Locks
Help preserve the heritage of one of the nation’s most unique transportation systems—a piece of living history right here in our communities. Make an investment in the sustainability of the locks or donate your time as a volunteer! Before there were roads, the river was the cultural and economic corridor of Northeast Wisconsin and gave birth to towns, cities and industry along its shores. We are passionate stewards of the history of the system, the environment and the future potential for the locks for the economy and tourism. If you would like to donate, please download our donation form OR contact us directly at our office.
