Outdoor Recreation In Minutes

June 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm


This virtual lunch and learn is for Women United and Emerging Leaders members.

Outdoor recreation has been identified as a top reason people visit Wisconsin and many of the state’s assets are right here! There is a substantial link between outdoor recreation, economic development and health and wellness. Marathon County has identified this in the 2016 Comprehensive Plan and the Wausau Region Chamber of Commerce identified the importance of outdoor recreation in the Greater Wausau Region Economic Development Strategic Plan.

Jamie Polley, Director of Parks, Recreation & Forestry for Wausau and Marathon County will give an overview of the opportunities that the Wausau and Marathon County Parks have to offer. She will also describe the unique 100 year relationship the City of Wausau and Marathon County have in managing the park system.

It is now time to get out and discover, or rediscover, the opportunities for all to be active right here within Marathon County!
