As Conservation Resource Supervisor for Madison Parks, Russ Hefty aggressively managed conservation areas. Recently retired from the post after 25 years, he can’t stop himself from continuing his dedicated work as a volunteer for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources at its Mt. Vernon property. He also plans to do some work at Donald Park near Mt. Vernon. And in January, he was elected to the board of the Friends of Cherokee Marsh.
