Retiree Glenn Dudderar, a Michigan State University Extension wildlife specialist for many years, is one of ten finalists in the Stormy Kromer Living Legend 2013 contest. Besides being an associate professor of wildlife biology, Glenn played a major role in creating the 4-H Great Lakes & Natural Resources Camp and according to senior program leader Judy Ratkos “helped shape what it is today.” Glenn is the author of the popular book “Nature From Your Back Door” available in the MSU Extension Bookstore.
Stormy Kromer will make a donation to the winner’s chosen charity. Glenn chose the Michigan 4-H Foundation for the 4-H Great Lakes & Natural Resources Camp.
You can cast a vote for Glenn, and in so doing, for the camp, by visiting the Stormy Kromer Living Legend 2013 website at www.stormykromer.com/living-legend. Take time to read the article about Glenn by nominator Denise Wecker-Seipke. I could add a few stories of my own, having taught with Glenn for many years in our study abroad program to the Bahamas. I learned a great deal about what it takes to be an Extension specialist from Glenn and still value all he did to teach me and all he did to help people in Michigan enrich their lives through their experience with Michigan’s wildlife heritage. You may vote daily now through Dec. 16.
