Enjoy family fun at Sturgeon Fest on September 30, 2017 - one of the biggest annual conservation events and festivals in Wisconsin, returning a breeding population of Sturgeon to Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee River!

How to Join

For a modest donation to the Return the Sturgeon Restoration Project, children, families, and adults participate in citizen science at its best by ‘sponsoring’ a baby sturgeon and hand-releasing it into Lake Michigan at our upcoming Sturgeon Fest celebration!

In addition to the chance to release one of these prehistoric marvels, sponsors will receive a certificate, a piece of exclusive memorabilia, AND the opportunity to register the microchipped sturgeon to track throughout its life!

There are a limited amount of sturgeon to sponsor, so it is recommended to pre-register to sponsor your fish.
