Sturgeon for Tomorrow, Inc. - Founding Organization & Wisconsin Chapters
Our Story
 
Sturgeon for Tomorrow is a nonprofit organization that began as a group of people who wanted to propagate a unique fish called the Lake Sturgeon, native to the Lake Winnebago System, so they started our organization’s first (Main) chapter in 1977 which was located on the east side of Lake Winnebago.

Since that time, four other Wisconsin based chapters were started: Southwest Chapter located in Fond du Lac, Northern Half Chapter located in the Neenah/Menasha/Appleton/Stockbridge area, and West Central Chapter located in Oshkosh. The newest to be formed is the Upper Lakes Chapter. Based out of Winneconne, this chapter was started to represent the areas surrounding, and those who spear for sturgeon on, Lake Butte des Morts, Lake Winneconne and Lake Poygan.

Each chapter holds a fundraising dinner once a year and money raised from these dinners is used for projects for the benefit and propagation of Lake Sturgeon. In the years since it's formation, Sturgeon for Tomorrow has donated over $700,000 to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and other Sturgeon Study Groups and projects.
