An environmental education center based in northern Vilas County has a new leader. 

The North Lakeland Discovery Center in Manitowish Waters has announced the appointment of Don Anderson as its new Executive Director.

The opportunity to work in such a stunning natural environment fills me with joy and gratitude.
