Your outdoors enjoyment is a top priority for State Representative Joel Kitchens, who the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation named the Conservation Legislator of the year. It’s the first time that Kitchens was given the award, and he says it’s nice to feel that the work he’s done is validated. Kitchens also recognizes the importance of outdoor recreation in northeast Wisconsin and says he finds the outdoors to be a unifier of people.
One of the recent accomplishments for Kitchens was helping in getting the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship reauthorized. He says Door County benefits as much if not more than anywhere else in the state from the Stewardship.
