I am pleased to announce the release of our 2016 Annual Report. A team from the Leadership West Bend sponsored by the West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce prepared this report. We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to the trio working on our project, Amanda Follett, Chris Lang and Dr. Andrea Lange. Their work on the report developed both the format and a template that will help to make generation of the report easier and more timely going forward. The report also includes interviews with volunteers, board members and visitors to the Conservancy. Each interview provides a different look at Lac Lawrann, as well as insights as to why they are involved, why they attend our programs and hike our trails. So as you are reading through the report, make a mental note to thank the Chamber for offering this opportunity for leadership development in our community and the individuals involved for all their hard work.
