Chad Cook

Chad has been a Natural Resources Educator with UW-Extension for over 10 years. With a background in water resources, he has focused on a variety of water quality issues in Northeast Wisconsin, specifically in the Fox and Wolf River watersheds. Chad’s current and recent work has centered on helping citizens, communities, counties and state and federal partners with ongoing efforts to reduce pollution and restore watershed health. Great Lakes Areas of Concern (AOCs), Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) and other watershed-based phosphorus reduction efforts, both in Northeast Wisconsin and across Wisconsin, have all been part of Chad’s recent work. In addition to watershed-based water quality projects, Chad also engages in local issues that may include aquatic invasive species, woodland owner education and organizational development around natural resources. Chad has also been the interim co-director of ERC since November 2017.
