You may have noticed we’ve been quiet over the past six months. We’ve been meeting as a board to plan, reprioritize, and get ready to hit the ground running so we can better serve the community.
As part of this transition, we aim to build a full 15-person board this year that is representative of our diverse urban watershed. In doing so, our goal is to embrace the organization’s long-standing scientific integrity, collaboration, and passion for Lake Wingra.
We recognize there are gaps in our current board’s capacity and expertise. As we grow, we hope to expand the organization’s diversity, historic and traditional knowledge, community connections, and skillset.
Based on the organization’s current board and priorities, we’re looking for interested community members with expertise in the following areas:
- Financial planning and bookkeeping
- Policy and/or advocacy
- Non-profit law
- Historic and traditional knowledge
Most importantly, we’re looking for candidates with interest in engaging the community and a love for the watershed.
Board Member Commitments & Expectations
We are a small, volunteer-led organization and our capacity is determined by the level of activity and commitment of our board members. At this time, the expectation is for new members to serve a 2-year term.

As the snow melts away and gives way to new growth across the watershed, we’re excited to build a bigger, stronger, and more active organization.
