Science Council


Our Members

Wisconsin’s Green Fire is grateful to have many volunteer leaders who are also career experts in fields that span our entire scope of interest and involvement. These dedicated conservation experts are one of our best assets and have helped establish Wisconsin's Green Fire as a respected source of information and ideas on environmental and conservation issues in Wisconsin.

Our Science Council member experts form our knowledge base on important, cross-cutting issues across Wisconsin.  They are appointed to represent a wide range of expertise – from fisheries and wildlife management, to water quality and energy policy.
