Bidding a Fond Farewell

With the change of seasons, the Aldo Leopold Foundation announces a change in staffing. This September we will say goodbye to Jennifer Kobylecky, the foundation’s Director of Education, as she moves on to pursue a new opportunity with the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her last day with the foundation will be Friday, September 14, 2018.

Jen has been an integral part of the foundation’s growth over the last 13 years. From developing a true Shack tour program, building and training a corps of guides, orchestrating the overwhelmingly successful release of Green Fire, overseeing the publication of insightful issues of The Leopold Outlook, building the Land Ethic Leaders program and growing a national cadre of alumni, to developing staff and fellows, and much, much, more – Jen has been an instrumental partner in big thinking and successful execution. Jen has truly been responsible for professionalizing and growing the education program of the Aldo Leopold Foundation. We are beyond grateful for her contributions to the foundation and to advancing the land ethic.

Jen listens intently to participants at a Land Ethic Leaders partner program with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service at the Southeast Louisiana National Wildlife Refuge in Lacombe, LA in 2012.

Please join us in thanking Jen for her amazing contributions and successes. Because of her longtime passion and commitment, we know she’ll carry the land ethic forward in new and creative ways. We are excited to witness how the land ethic will reach new and diverse audiences through her ambassadorship. We wish her all the best!
