As the Community Conservation Manager, Nick joins the Conservancy to serve the users of our Greenway, to ensure the neighborhood feels connected to the Greenway, in terms of recreation, transportation or more!
Additionally, Nick monitors and inspects many of the Wolf River Conservancy’s 16,000+ acres of protected lands and waters – He hopes to see you out on the Greenway sometime!
