- The North Lakeland Discovery Center will welcome a new executive director.
The center in Manitowish Waters focuses on connecting people with nature. That's how Azeal Meza first connected with the discovery center. He says he is excited to move forward as the executive director.
"I was immediately impressed with the organization," says Meza. "I have been part of the bird club for a while, and it's a nice place where I come here with my family to hike the trials, paddle, you name it."
Leaders at the center say this has been their best summer ever. Meza credits workers and the community for making that happen.
"I'm really impressed with the community support that we get from volunteers to our donors, to our sponsors and then just people that visit us and enjoy the place," says Mesa.
Workers say the summer rush is winding down, but that doesn't mean they don't have work this fall.
The center will be the starting point for the Northwoods Bad Dash Saturday in Manitowish Waters.
