After a fruitful season as Executive Director for the Friends of Freedom Park and the Great River Road Visitor & Learning Center, Israel Haas has accepted another opportunity. His last day as Executive Director is November 25, but he will continue to support Friends of Freedom Park and its sponsored project Coulee River Trails as a volunteer. He and his family plan to remain active in the community, especially with Coulee River Trails. Friends of Freedom Park wishes the best for Israel in his next steps. Board Chair Jeff Ruehle has directed the Board to begin a search process to identify a new leader. For more information, visit their website at FreedomParkWI.org.
