GB Parks and Rec Director on Winter Activities, New Position in Latest Community Update | WFRV Local 5

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WFRV) – Green Bay Parks and Recreation Director James Andersen joined Local 5 and discussed several topics.

Andersen said the city hired his position as the Conservation Corps coordinator. The primary responsibility of the position is to plan the program grant for the next three to five years. The city received a grant to fill the position, but the actual grant from the conservation body could range from one to five million.

The grant will be used for conservation efforts, and Andersen set the example of removing invasive species. The money received from the grant will also be used to help hire “journeypersons”.

Many winter activities take place in the local parks and trails. Andersen says they plan to have a tubing and snowboarding track at Triangle Hill. However, it depends on the weather conditions as temperatures could possibly melt the snow in the coming days. Several trails in Green Bay are groomed for cross-country skiing and heavy tire biking.

Frenzy on the Fox is an event on January 21 that begins at the City Deck in Green Bay. Andersen says participants can bring any form of transportation they wish to use on the Fox River Trail.
