Speaker/DNR Officer

Department of Natural Resources officer, Elliot Worel, updated members on DNR laws and practices at the April 17 meeting.

Officer Elliot Worel, retired Army officer and former Black Hawk helicopter pilot, spoke to the members about DNR issues and answered questions. Members asked about deer encroaching into the city and practices to control those populations. Living with and managing the coyote packs opened another discussion. Members residing on area lakes gathered information about water patrol activities. Officer Worel indicated that these patrols would increase as the summer months approach.

Coincidentally, Officer Worel and his family joined Wilder Creek Conservation Club prior to his invitation to speak. The officer grew up participating in outdoor activities with his father and hopes to share those experiences with his family at Wilder Creek.

Welcome and thank you, Officer Worel!
