Why GLC and conservation matters to Peter: "Outdoor spaces have always been important to me for recreational purposes, but as man’s influence on the environment continues to increase, the value of open space becomes even more apparent for a myriad of reasons. From habitat fragmentation, to the loss of pollinators and declines in bird and insect populations, the effect of human manipulation on the natural world can easily be seen and felt in our everyday lives. The preservation of lands will not only positively impact our environment, but also our economies and psychological well-being. As terms such as “nature deficit disorder” become more common, we recognize that our mission not only preserves land, but also increases the quality of life for our communities at large".
Peter enjoys camping and hiking in Wisconsin State Parks and National Parks and Forests with his family, bicycling and running with his daughters, fishing, hunting, canoeing. and being involved in community conservation related activities in the community.
