Biography

Gretchen Benjamin grew up in Winona Minnesota on the banks of the Mississippi River. She loved spending time on the river as a kid especially when she could go out on her neighbor’s houseboat to the “islands”. Her love and passion for the outdoors drove her to pursue a career that allowed her to protect what was important to her. She went to college at the University of Montana graduating with a degree in Natural Resource Management in 1982. The first professional jobs were in Yellowstone and Voyageur National Parks as a seasonal Park Naturalist but the desire to work year around and have a permanent job led her to begin a career with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. She spent almost 25 years working for the WDNR on the Mississippi River before leaving to work for The Nature Conservancy also on the Mississippi River. Her love for the Mississippi River was amplified as she spend more and more time on the river through what is now 30 + year career. As a founding board member, she considers the support she provided to Mississippi Valley Conservancy to be one of her major life achievements for the beautiful landscape that surrounds this magnificent river. She is proud to be back on the Board after a 6 year absence. She lives in La Crosse and has a grown son.

Special Interests: Aquatic plants and their ecology, scuba diving (anywhere), triathlons and quilting.
