The opening session will be a discussion on the use of prizes during the summer, the pros and cons of using prizes, but also some fresh ideas on what a low cost, safe prize can be other than a trinket. The program for the day includes a free tour of the Childrens Museum in Appleton, A Building for Kids, including the hands-on Water Room activities. Patti Sinclair, who edits the CSLP manual, will share highlights from the manuals. Representatives from the Wisconsin Historical Society, the Wisconsin Water Library at UW-Madison, the Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Two Rivers and the Heckrodt Wetland Reserve in Menasha will be presenting.
