Board of Directors

Trees For Tomorrow’s founders realized the need for a strong educational component and established an advisory board on education in 1945. As the reputation for the authenticity of the Trees For Tomorrow experience grew, so did the attendance. That reputation is even stronger today. Now, as Wisconsin’s only fully accredited environmental education center, Trees For Tomorrow serves 10,000 students, teachers and adults every year.


The forward thinking of our founders continues through our current board members. Trees For Tomorrow’s focus has remained the same since 1944, and still remains as valid in today’s world. Our field-based programs place people in direct contact with natural resources that support human needs, and teach knowledge and skills leading to responsible lifestyle choices. As demand for natural resources increases, this environmental education is becoming even more critical.


TFT's governing board of directors provides strategic oversight and governance, ensuring alignment with TFT's mission and long-term stratgic plan. It also identifies and mitigates risks, hires and evaluates the Executive Director, and ensures ethical and legal compliance. Additionally, board members leverage their networks for fundraising, offer expert advice, and act as ambassadors to enhance TFT's public image and stakeholder relationships.

Board of Directors

Since its beginning in 1944, Trees For Tomorrow (TFT) Natural Resources Specialty School, has relied upon the guidance offered by organizations and individuals with an interest in the advancement of natural resources education. One conduit to receive that advice has been our Advisory Council. The Council was established in the 1940s to help organize and act upon this guidance.


Advisory Council members are volunteers with the ability to raise funds, secure scholarships for students, take on leadership roles, provide liaison with educators and their interest groups, carry the TFT influence into the state and region, generate new ideas, sponsor TFT programs, and make personal contributions to the program. The flexible nature of the Council’s structure has permitted a great deal of latitude to respond to changing times and needs.
