River Bend Nature Center Director Resigns

The newly formed River Bend Nature Center Inc. just reopened its doors after they had hired a new director Linda Cieslik, but now she's resigned.

Just a few weeks after the welcomed in a new executive director, the group that just acquired the facility must now find a replacement, according to a story by the Journal Times.

Linda Cieslik of Milwaukee started the position in mid August, but she resigned, said Roger Chernik, president of the newly formed River Bend Nature Center Inc.

According to the story:

“We’re a start-up business,” he (Chernik) explained. “It was not a good fit for her.”

Earlier this year, Jim Ladwig, Racine County executive, held a news briefing in announcing that a preliminary agreement had been reached between Racine County and the YWCA of Racine to purchase the property for $400,000. Using Land And Water Conservation (LAWCON) funds they received years ago from the federal government, no county taxes were used for the purchase, Ladwig said.

That property transaction was finalized in May.
