Wisconsin's public lands administrator has accepted a position guiding a new national educational initiative on climate change, population growth and nuclear proliferation, the Outrider Foundation announced Wednesday.
Tia Nelson will be a managing director of the Madison-based foundation, President Frank Burgess said in a press release.
Tara Drozdenko was also named to a managing director post. Drozdenko is a national security expert and former manager at the U.S. Departments of State and Treasury.
Nelson on Tuesday announced she was resigning her post as executive secretary of the state Board of Commissioners of Public Lands. The board drew national attention by banning Nelson, the daughter of Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, and her staff from talking about climate change
