Greg Keilback Moves to Severson Dells
It is with mixed emotions that we announce to NLI members that Greg Keilback, Director of Land Stewardship, has accepted a position at Winnebago County Forest Preserve District as Biologist/Educator. Greg will lead educational programs at Severson Dells Nature Center and at other Forest Preserve District locations. He will also oversee biological research and survey projects for the District. His last day at NLI will be March 2 nd. Our loss is their gain. We know his talent, skills and leadership qualities will be tremendous assets to their organization.
Greg Keilback worked for NLI as stewardship assistant from 2008 to May 2010 when he was promoted to Director of Land Stewardship . is degree in Natural Resources Ecology and Conservation Biology from the University of Idaho-Moscow (2005), in addition to his experiences in restoration ecology, animal and plant biology, stream and riparian ecology and environmental interpretation made him the ideal leader to assist NLI in preserving, maintaining, restoring and managing natural land for the conservation organization.
One of Greg’s favorite things to do is to share his knowledge and love of the land. “I love to watch the emotions of how people feel when they are learning and experiencing nature†said Greg, “when they get it.â€
Greg is particularly proud of implementing the hands-on educational Conservation Camp presented by NLI the past two summers. It is a week-long training program that teaches young people about land conservation based on the Land Ethics of Aldo Leopold. An outing during last year’s camp was to Leopold’s historic shack in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Greg said that one of his most treasured moments working for NLI was when “we were walking through the woods, the kids were noisy and boisterous, as we walked around a corner in the path, one by one they went silent when they saw the shack. Seeing them so affected by the sight of it was incredible. That was a teachable moment.†Keilback successfully led stewardship volunteers to complete the oak savanna restoration plan at Nygren Wetland Preserve in Rockton that was a 3 year process. He created the restoration management plan for the most recent land acquisition of Pecatonica Woodlands Preserve along the Pecatonica River. Keilback made numerous contributions over the years that helped protect and preserve the extraordinary natural areas of our community.
When asked what he sees as important to the future of the land conservation organization he said, “NLI is so important to the community.
Greg says a “big thank you to everyone.
