Northeast Wisconsin men honored for work advancing clean water initiatives

ALLOUEZ (WLUK) — Congressman Mike Gallagher recognized two local citizens on Friday for their work to protect Northeast Wisconsin’s freshwater resources and advance clean water initiatives.

Mike Grimm and Tom Sigmund, both highly respected in their fields, were honored during a ceremony at Green Isle Park in Allouez. Grimm is a conservation ecologist retiring from The Nature Conservancy, where he founded the “Door Peninsula Project” and led a number of other conservation projects.

At the event, Rep. Gallagher presented both men with entries he submitted to the Congressional Record on behalf of their exceptional work and leadership within the Northeast Wisconsin community.

“I’ve known Mike and Tom since my first year in the House [of Representatives] and I’m thankful for their vision and their unfailing commitment to improving and safeguarding the waterways in our corner of Wisconsin that then find their way into Lake Michigan,” Rep. Gallagher said during the ceremony.
