Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/26/2015

Governor Scott Walker has appointed two new members to the state's natural resources board. Dr. Frederick Prehn and Julie Anderson will each serve a six-year term on the panel.

Dr. Prehn is a dentist at Prehn Dental, a third generation practice founded by his grandfather. In addition, he and his wife, Linda, also own Prehn Cranberry Company, where they manage and grow 157-acres of cranberries in the Tomah area.

As a long-time outdoorsman, Frederick has held fishing and hunting licenses in Wisconsin for over 42 years.

"Dr. Prehn has had a distinguished career in dentistry and in managing the operations of Prehn Cranberry and Central Wisconsin Firearms," Governor Walker said. "His multifaceted expertise, sincere appreciation for natural resources, and first-hand knowledge of ecologically friendly practices will be a great benefit to the board."

Meanwhile, Anderson has served over 24 years in Racine County government as Planning and Development Director, Land Information Officer, Highway Commissioner, and board member of the Racine County Economic Development Corporation. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and furthered her education at UW-Milwaukee with a Master of Arts degree in geography.

Currently, Ms. Anderson serves as Racine County Public Works & Development Services Director.

The natural resources board sets policy for the DNR and holds public meetings around the state to gather input on natural resources policies. The seven members of the DNR Board serve staggered six-year terms.
