Crossroads Seeks New Executive Director

Hauser to lead development efforts

Crossroads at Big Creek’s executive director, Laurel Hauser, will soon transition into the role of development director as the nonprofit continues to fulfill its strategic goals. Crossroads’ board of directors will be working to hire a new executive director during the coming months. 

“I love Crossroads’ mission and the people involved, and I’m very excited about opportunities that lie ahead,” Hauser said. “Because of where I’m at personally in terms of my career, and because of my past experiences, I believe the most impactful role I can play right now is in Crossroads’ development program.”

Hauser joined the organization in 2019 and became executive director in 2020. During her tenure, Crossroads created new trail systems at the Big Creek and Ida Bay preserves, installed three pedestrian bridges, adopted and began implementing an ecological restoration plan, launched a new website, more than doubled its staff size, and increased its programming and volunteer engagement. Behind-the-scenes work has included facilities and strategic planning for future growth, and on a broader scale, Crossroads has been recommended for inclusion as a natural area of the new Green Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. 

“We are nearing a point when we will be prioritizing and asking for community input on our goals and future facility needs,” said board president Jim Stawicki.
