Leann Wolthusen grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, but spent summers exploring the outdoors in Necedah, WI and Lake of the Ozarks, MO.  She pursued her Associates Degree of Science from the College of DuPage, followed by a B.S. in Wildlife Habitat Management program at Arizona State University. Her interest in animals has been a driving force for many years. She is in her second year of internship at the Aldo Leopold Foundation.

Cameron Bushong grew up in rural Marysville, Ohio, not far from the great city of Columbus. He graduated from The Ohio State University in 2012 with a B.S. in Environment and Natural Resources, while specializing in forest ecosystem management. One of the experiences that made the biggest impact on Cameron’s undergraduate career was a study abroad trip to Queensland, Australia, where he studied the interactions between humans and the environment. His professional interests include restoration of oak-hickory forests, forest management, and working with private landowners.  Personal hobbies include hiking, camping, and making delicious meals.

Emily Iehl grew up in Crystal Lake, Illinois. While obtaining her Bachelor’s degree in Biological Aspects of Conservation at UW-Madison, she developed an awareness of the relationships between people, other species, and the resources that we share on Earth. During college and since graduating in 2011, Emily has led horseback tours in Yellowstone National Park, sampled a restored prairie at the Aldo Leopold Foundation, and radio-tracked turkeys on the coastal plain of Delaware. She enjoys spending time with her young German Shorthaired Pointer, learning to hunt and fish, running, and baking cheesecakes.

Dakota Johnson grew up in North Freedom, Wisconsin. He has an associate’s degree from the University of Wisconsin Baraboo/Sauk County and is currently a student at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point studying wildlife ecology: research and management. Dakota enjoys hunting, fishing, and hiking.

Lyndsey Mittelstaedt grew up in rural Wisconsin, on a small farm, near Reedsburg. She is pursuing a degree in ecosystem restoration at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. Lyndsey spent last summer learning and traveling throughout Germany, Poland and Iceland with the College of Natural Resources. She enjoys spending time with her family and has a great love for the outdoors. She also enjoys spending her free time at Devil's Lake hiking.

Steven Bachleda was born in Illinois in a small farming town called Marengo. He goes to the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. Steven is a junior majoring in hydrology with a minor in soil science and a wetland certificate. He enjoys fishing a lot along with canoeing down the river. His favorite place to be is by a small creek regardless of if he’s fishing or not. Steven came from a family of five, with two sisters—he’s always enjoyed helping on the farm and all of his past jobs have been with agriculture.
