IPAW is proud of the fact that its Board of Directors have a diverse natural resource management background. The Board represents all geographic areas of Wisconsin. If you are interested in serving as a Board member or volunteer, please contact us.
Chrissy Bartelme joined IPAW in September 2019. As the Program Assistant, Chrissy performs several tasks: she maintains the membership database; does the layout for, edits the articles for, and emails the quarterly newsletter, “Plants Out of Place;” and works on invasive education outreach through social media (don’t forget to Like us on Facebook), takes the minutes of meetings; and (with the tremendous help of Scott) maintains the website. If you email IPAW, she is the one who will respond to you or will forward your email on to the appropriate person. Chrissy is also a graduate student at UW-Green Bay and is currently studying and writing a management plan for the European marsh thistle. In her free time she enjoys kayaking, camping, and hiking–especially on the Ice Age Trail. Chrissy’s first job after completing her undergraduate degree was working on lakes and she loves spending time near water and exploring the native aquatic and wetland vegetation.
