First Annual Meeting

WI Green Fire, July 28, 2017


Wisconsin’s Green Fire is holding its first Annual Membership Meeting on September 8-9 at the Aldo Leopold Foundation in Baraboo.

We are planning a very inspiring and productive meeting.  Among our scheduled keynote speakers are Dr. Stan Temple, Dr. Curt Meine and Tia Nelson (invited).

We would like to invite interested natural resources professionals and scientists, as well as members of the public who support our mission to attend. Those who attend will need to officially join WGF in order to participate and vote.

The purpose of our meeting is to elect board members, hone our purpose and priorities for the coming year and hold focus group discussions. Perhaps most importantly, we will have a great time, renew longstanding friendships and professional relationships, and forge new partnerships!

    I am sending you my membership form today. Unfortunately I am not able to attend your September 8 & 9 meeting, though I would love to. As a retired professional limnologist and environmental scientist I hope to become more involved in your organization.
