Petenwell and Castle Rock Stewards (PACRS) are regular people that love these lakes and the Wisconsin River. We want to protect the water so folks can continue to enjoy it for generations to come.

Since 2007 the PACRS have been working hard to take care of this special place. From helping state and local partners find ways to reduce algae blooms to monitoring water quality, we are “stewards” of these beloved lakes.

We partner with conservation groups, state and local agencies, individuals, businesses, and property associations in Adams and Juneau counties.

We also communicate with friends “upstream” who share our concern for the health of the Wisconsin River and its watershed.

The Petenwell and Castle Rock Stewards (PACRS) members are comprised of Adams and Juneau County landowners, business owners, recreation club members, condo association members, elected officials, and citizens.

The PACRS board of directors and technical advisers meet monthly. The PACRS want to expand the organization’s reach and build formal ties to organized groups and individuals that share the PACRS’ interest in restoring the Petenwell and Castle Rock Lakes.
