Cathy Justis, who possesses a background in
biology and both a passion for the Conservancy’s mission and an
understanding of the importance of educating children, young people,
and adults about the Wolf River, our water resources, and the natural
world we live in.
Under Cathy’s capable leadership and with the
support of Buckman, International Paper,
FedEx, and our members and donors, our 2015 environmental outreach
program was able to provide:

adults and school age children.
Ø Two Educator Workshops focused on water with over 40
participating teachers, non-formal educators and other adults. More workshops will be held this March.

different speakers in 2015. We are now lining up our speakers for
2016 – stay tuned!
Ø Our unique Frog Chorus Walk and Wolf River Stream
Ø Service projects to improve storm water runoff, remove
exotic invasive plants, and create habitat with native plants.
Ø Significant improvements to the Wolf River Conservancy education
resource pages on the WRC website, which strives to be the go-to
source for all questions about the Wolf River Watershed.
