GLIN==> FWB 2000 Hires New Executive Director


Linda Stoll Joins Fox-Wolf Basin 2000
As New Executive Director

Fox-Wolf Basin 2000 is pleased to announce the hiring of Linda Stoll as its new 
executive director.

"We are happy that Linda is on board," said Pete Van Airsdale, president of Fox-Wolf 
Basin 2000.  "Everyone on the board is enthusiastic about her filling the Executive 
Director position and helping the organization move forward with its mission."

Stoll comes to the organization with an extensive background in facilitation, 
mediation, and strategic planning and has served as a consultant in these areas, 
with a special emphasis on their application to environmental issues.

"Fox-Wolf Basin 2000 is pursuing a number of ongoing projects that require bringing 
a group of people together representing many backgrounds and many viewpoints 
and reaching some consensus about where things should be going," she said. "This 
is one of the strengths that I bring."

Stoll said she believes strongly in Fox-Wolf Basin 2000's watershed approach 
to water-quality improvement and is committed to nurturing the organization's 
existing relationships, fulfilling its goals in a variety of arenas, expanding 
its financial resources, and strengthening its capacity and growth.

A Menasha, Wis., native, Stoll enjoys strong, longstanding ties to the Fox-Wolf 

"I live near Lake Winnebago, grew up in the city of Menasha, swam in the Fox 
River," she said. "So the things that Fox-Wolf Basin 2000 cares about hit me 
really close to home. When this opportunity came up to make a contribution, it 
was something I really wanted to do."

Stoll's recent endeavors include serving as lead planner in developing a management 
plan for the Plover River and in helping to create Portage County's landmark 
open space plan, one of only two such county plans in Wisconsin.

She has also worked with Fox Cities Greenways to craft a rail-to-trail conversion 
for a mile-long railroad trestle over the Fox River, helped organize Gov. Tommy 
Thompson's participation in the Fox-Wisconsin Rivers Heritage Corridor Canoe 
Trip as part of the state's 1998 sesquicentennial festivities, and chaired the 
natural resource branch of the Wisconsin League of Women Voters.  

Stoll has also been a state second vice president for the League and president 
of its Neenah -Menasha chapter.

Stoll has two decades of experience as an environmental educator, including serving 
as a teacher/naturalist at Appleton's Bubolz Nature Center and as a master outdoor 
trainer for the Fox River Area Girl Scout Council. 

Stoll holds a master's degree in resource management and land-use planning from 
the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point as well as an undergraduate degree 
in biology from Carroll College.

Stoll succeeds Bruce Johnson, who resigned April 21 to become executive director 
of the Rivers Council of Minnesota. She can be reached in care of Fox-Wolf Basin 
2000, Box 1861, Appleton, WI 54912-1861, via telephone at (920) 738-7025, and
