Hall of Fame News 2016 | Noel Cutright and Leroy Lintereur are 2016 Inductees

The Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame will celebrate its 32nd Induction Ceremony by honoring one citizen advocate and one public servant with induction into the Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame this year – both have left indelible marks on the Wisconsin environment.

The public is invited to the free celebration to be held at 10 a.m., at Sentry Theater, located at Sentry Insurance Headquarters, 1800 North Point Drive, Steven Point, Wisconsin. A 9 a.m. coffee will precede the program. A luncheon at noon at the High Court Restaurant in the Sentry World Sports Building concludes the day’s activities. Luncheon reservations can be made by calling 715-346-4992. Cost $25.

This year we honor Noel Cutright and his legacy: his love of bird song, his passion for knowing and sharing, and his wisdom in blending profession with avocation. As president and longtime leader of the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology, he significantly advanced its efforts in citizen science and ecological restoration. As Senior Ecologist working for We-Energies for 30 years, he became the “conservation conscience” of the energy industry and helped business and industry see that caring for the earth is also good for the ledger book. With a life so filled with accomplishments, what would Noel have done with “one more day”? Maybe revise the “Breeding Birds of Wisconsin”, or just enjoy the songs of spring and the brilliant yellow of the Kentucky warbler?

We also honor LeRoy Lintereur and the marshes, woods and waterways he loved. As a Wildlife Manager for the DNR for 30 years, he spent most of his professional life fighting for the wildlife and wetlands of northeastern Wisconsin. As an expert witness in a precedent-setting Wisconsin Supreme Court case, he helped to defend and ultimately preserve many wetlands in Wisconsin. As a gifted naturalist, he shared his sense of wonder and passion for nature through his teaching and writing. With “just one more day”, what would LeRoy have done? Maybe write another essay or maybe just listen to the song of blackbirds on cattails?

Plan to join us on April 30th to honor these two worthy sons of Wisconsin.
