It’s a good read. I especially liked the final para which reads “Will we survive the current batch of “environmental terrorists”? Maybe. Personally, I wish Lorrie Otto was still alive so I could watch her tear Pruitt apart.” I would, too!

For over thirty years NWF has worked to preserve our state’s most vulnerable public resources – our land, our water, our endangered species as well as providing conservation education to thousands.
In making the presentation, Bill said “Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction” as well as physical and mental health. So we are all in this together.”
He concluded with, “The Natural Resources Foundation is pleased to present the Besadny grant award to the Conservation Hall of Fame. The grant to the Hall of Fame will help with website design and upgrades. The committee felt its importance mirrors the evolving methods of getting one’s message across many venues and commended the Board and staff for taking those steps. It will help the Hall of Fame do its important work even more effectively by getting the message out to larger more diverse audiences.
We look forward to working closely with the Hall of Fame to preserve Wisconsin’s Conservation Legacy for the future.”
We were pleased to have the Sauk County Conservation Chronicle September 2017 newsletter reprint the WCHF monograph on Milly Zantow. Milly’s married life brought her to North Freedom and Sauk County where she was inspired to launch the recycling revolution in Wisconsin and the nation.
“Milly lived a life of service and giving back. She was a pioneer in plastics recycling, and a fervent disciple of municipal waste recycling.” (Sauk County Conservation Chronicle)
