Bryon Black - Executive Director
After serving as a board member and volunteer, and after the previous director had to leave due to health reasons, Bryon felt that he could be more involved and effective for the Northwoods Wildlife Center as the Executive Director. He brings with him years of diverse experience from fields such as marketing, graphic design, web, and application development. Bryon has also had a life long interest and commitment in the health and well being of our wild animal populations.
Bryon is also the president of the Lakeland Area Mountain Bike Organization, and can often be found mountain biking trails, events and races throughout the region.
