FRBF Mission Statement
"To oppose the construction of a golf course within the Black River Forest and to promote the preservation of the integrity of that river, its wetlands, the forest and the adjoining Lake Michigan shore as an ecological whole."

Unfortunately today, the only recourse the public has in this state to protect our land, air and water, is the court of law.
Tell the DNR you are opposed to the both the destruction of the beautiful, rare, open and forested Great Lakes sand dune ecosystem and the give away of publicly owned state park lands for the exclusive use and destruction by Kohler, a for-profit, private company.
Tell the DNR that you are opposed to an easement over State Park lands as this violates LAWCON. The Kohler Company was denied an easement in 1984 because the DNR chose to follow the rules. The issue is no different today and their request to use any State Park land should be denied.
Tell the DNR Natural Resources Board to refuse to facilitate an amendment which ultimately will create precedent to give away state park land to a company for its private profit.

"A little fill here and there may seem to be nothing to become excited about. But one fill, though comparatively inconsequential, may lead to another, and another, and before long a great body may be eaten away until it may no longer exist. Our navigable waters are a precious natural heritage, once gone, they disappear forever," wrote the Wisconsin Supreme Court in its 1960 opinion resolving Hixon v. PSC and buttressing The Public Trust Doctrine, Article IX of the Wisconsin State Constitution.
