Confessions of a Recovering Bureaucrat: A WGF Conversation with Todd Ambs

January 27, 2022

Location: Online

There are few people in the history of Wisconsin conservationists who've served in as many roles as effectively as Todd Ambs. Todd retired in December as the Deputy Secretary of Wisconsin DNR, capping an over 40-year career in and around the waters of the Great Lakes and beyond. In his latest role serving in the Evers administration, Todd led one of Wisconsin's largest state agencies. He navigated controversial issues such as wolf hunting and PFAS contamination, as well as intensely partisan events around conservation governance, with the last two years of that time during the midst of a global pandemic.

In this free-wheeling conversation with WGF Executive Director Fred Clark, Todd will share reflections on Wisconsin conservation today and share his ideas for our future. He might even break out his old guitar! Come join us, and be ready to sing along, for a lunch-time conversation with Todd Ambs.
