Success - Wisconsin Summit for Natural Resources Volunteers

We hosted our first conference along with the Wisconsin Citizen-based Monitoring Network and called the Wisconsin Summit for Natural Resources Volunteers.  It was a great success!  There were fabulous presentations, workshops, trainings and field trips held during the Summit - all that counted towards the advanced training hours for Master Naturalist volunteers.  Awards were presented to our Outstanding Master Naturalist Volunteer (Tom Lentz); Outstanding Master Naturalist Instructor (Sue Eiler and Mary Trainor), and Outstanding Volunteer Project (Jordan Park Nature Center - Paul Doxsee and fellow Master Naturalist volunteers).  Service pins were also distributed at the Summit.  Don't worry, if you weren't able to attend, your pin will be mailed to you in April.

Want to know what you missed?  Feel free to check out the Summit Guide for details on the keynote, presenters and abstracts, volunteer fair, sponsors and the silent auction!  

Thank you to our sponsors below!  We would not have been able to do this without their support.  Pictures to be posted soon!
