Joining the likes environmental legends Aldo Leopold and Gaylord Nelson, Charlotte and the late Roy Lukes will be inducted into the Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame this weekend. The pair brought nature to life, routinely sharing their expertise while giving presentations at places like The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor and Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay on a number of topics ranging from birding to mushrooms. Charlotte says Roy would have been honored with the induction and is proud of the changes she has seen since she came to the area in 1972.
The Lukes’ will be honored alongside the late wildlife scholar Arlie Schorger and former Department of Natural Resources Secretary George Meyer at a ceremony held in Stevens Point. Before then, Lukes will give a presentation on bluebirds at Crossroads at Big Creek this Thursday at 7 p.m.
