The Fox Locks are run by a volunteer board of directors comprised of community leaders and representatives from state agencies. There are two members each from Brown, Outagamie and Winnebago Counties and designees of the Secretaries of the Departments of Natural Resources, Transportation, and the Director of the State Historical Society.
We had the opportunity to chat with Jean Romback-Bartels, the DNR secretary’s director in Northeast Wisconsin. Jean started her career with the DNR as a wildlife technician, then a park ranger, and was promoted as a land & forestry leader. She holds a bachelor’s degree in wildlife and biology, and a minor in natural resources management and is a dedicated outdoors woman.
Please take a moment to find out why she believes the locks are one of the critical pieces of infrastructure in the State of Wisconsin.
