The Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame Foundation (WCHF) celebrates the year of our 100th Inductee with three new conservation leaders on April 25, 2020. The Induction Ceremony will be held in the Atrium at SentryWorld in Stevens Point, WI. The public is invited.
The inductees are: Stephen Born, a well-known UW-Madison professor who specialized in environmental planning and worked on almost every aspect of water management, the Great Lakes, inland lakes, groundwater, rivers and watersheds, in addition to loving all things trout. Jens Jensen, a landscape architect of the Upper Midwest who developed public parks, preserves, and private estates, focusing on indigenous plants and the location’s ecological features, who also founded the “school of the soil” in Door County known as The Clearing. Stanley Temple, a UW-Madison professor who studied endangered birds, habitat fragmentation, invasive species and other factors leading to species declines, and now serves as a Senior Fellow with The Aldo Leopold Foundation, researching, writing and speaking about Leopold.
