LNRP Welcomes Two New Board Members

Marne Kaeske and Chris Olson, both from Door County, joined the Lakeshore National Resource Partnership (LNRP) Board of Directors as of August.

Kaeske has worked for the Ridges Sanctuary since 2009 and holds bachelor’s degrees in American Indian Studies and Conservation and Environmental Science. Kaeske landed her dream job out of college, wrangling wolves as a fish and wildlife technician for the 1854 Treaty Authority, an inter-tribal natural resources management agency. Kaeske also coordinates the Door County Invasive Species Team (DCIST), develops The Ridges’ organizational outreach program, facilitates a multitude of citizen science programs and assists in ecological and agricultural research.

Olson came from Milwaukee, graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, and now resides and works with wastewater and water quality issues in Door County. Despite his formal education, he learned “the real work is about people and relationships, not just the poop.” He has served on the Wisconsin OnSite Water Recycling Association board, participated in the state’s septic system code committee as a member of the Wisconsin County Code Administrators, and remains active in both professional organizations.

Kaeske and Olson bring fresh ideas to LNRP’s strategic planning for Door County and the Lakeshore region. For more information visit
