Bill Rattunde – Backyard Hero

Each month, Community Shares of Wisconsin recognize two outstanding member agency volunteers who have given their time to our member groups and to our community. These volunteers are seldom in the news but are always on the front lines of critical issues that make our community a better place to live.

Bill Rattunde is a dedicated volunteer whose efforts have made a huge difference for 1000 Friends of Wisconsin. His background in architecture and landscape architecture was critical in forming sustainable land use practices in our Green Tier Legacy Communities project. Bill’s professional background and his lifelong commitment to preserving the natural landscape make him the perfect fit for 1000 Friends.
