Lead Sinker Exchange
Get the Lead Out! is a campaign taking place in several U.S. states and Canada. To educate anglers on the effects of lead fishing tackle on loons and other birds and wildlife, the LoonWatch program of the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute and the Wild Rivers Chapter of WI Trout Unlimited have partnered to educate anglers in Wisconsin on how they can help.
