We are a group of six master’s students in the Environmental Observation and Informatics program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

In this project, we provide an overview of the expansion of the City of Sun Prairie, background on how climate change is projected to affect this area of Wisconsin, and an analysis of how land cover types have changed in the area bordering Koshkonong Creek.

We hope this project will provide a better understanding of the effect that Koshkonong Creek has on the neighboring land and help advocate for increased management of the creek to reduce flooding in this area.
