Welcome our new Natural Resources Educator!

We are thrilled to welcome Wade Moder as the new Natural Resources Educator at Dane County UW-Madison Division of Extension.

In this new role, Wade will offer invaluable support to community organizations, spearheads educational programs, and works passionately to raise awareness about Dane County’s natural resources and conservation initiatives. 

Before joining Extension, Wade served as the executive director of the non-profit Upper Sugar River Watershed Association for nine years. His dedication extends further as he continues to collaborate with a farmer-led coalition he played a pivotal role in founding, known as Farmers for the Upper Sugar River.

Wade brings a wealth of experience to the table, including expertise in developing and leading community science programs, strategic planning, watershed management, invasive species control, and native prairie restoration. 

We look forward to the positive impact Wade will undoubtedly make in our community and beyond. Join us in extending a warm welcome to Wade Moder!
