Over the past 4+ years, I have shared a few dozen posts about and probably hundreds of photographs taken at the Chippewa Watershed Conservancy's many preserves. I have brought students to the preserves to learn more about science in the field. I have led probably close to twenty public events in the preserves. Last year I was honored to receive the Chippewa Watershed Conservancy's Robert (Bob) Ball Award for my contributions to the Conservancy's mission of protecting natural habitat and open space.
Now a new chapter of my relationship with the Chippewa Watershed Conservancy begins. Over the past year or so several members of the CWC Board of Directors have asked if I would be willing to serve on the Board if a spot opened up. Recently two positions have become available. After meeting last week with CWC President John Mitchell, I accepted an offer to join the Board immediately.
My first meeting as a member of the Board is this Wednesday (15 MAR 2017).
I look forward to this challenge and can't wait to see the direction that the organization takes over the next few years.
