Welcome to the WWOA Volunteer Center!

Having started in 2014, the WWOA-AmeriCorps partnership has expanded WWOA’s volunteer capacity, helping the organization accomplish its mission and goals.

AmeriCorps is a national service program sponsored by the federal government to assist communities in meeting their service needs. Marshfield Clinic has partnered with AmeriCorps and Volunteer Wisconsin to expand service opportunities in Wisconsin.

Hello, WWOA Members! My name is Violet Thielke and I am the new Marshfield Clinic Health System AmeriCorps member serving WWOA from 2021-22. You may remember me as the 2019 recipient of the WWOA Forestry Leader Scholarship. I was born and raised in Waupaca where I grew up on my family’s farm and in the woods, working alongside my father and his whole-tree wood chipping business. Through experience in the woods harvesting timber, as well as my college education, I have learned the importance of the proper techniques of forest management and maintenance. My primary professional goal is not only improving forest stands through effective harvesting, but also educating woodland owners and future generations on the importance of preserving and enhancing our environment.

I am looking forward to reconnecting with many of you and meeting others along the way. I write the “Learn Something New” emails and I’d be happy to write about a woodland related subject that you’re interested in! Please reach out to me using the information below with any questions or if you would like further information on volunteering with WWOA. I would love to hear from and speak with more WWOA members!
