Three Board members were elected at the Annual BCA meeting. Both Lynn Morgenson and Rich Brauhn were elected for their second two-year term. However, a new member to the Board was elected for her first term; Ms. Laura Anhalt from Mandan.
Laura is the spouse of Tracy Potter and has been married for 37 years. Laura and Tracy have two children, Vaughn and Jenny. Until recently, Laura worked at the State Tax Department as the receptionist and Wellness Coordinator for 23 years until retiring in April 2015. An avid yoga practitioner and fitness advocate, she is drawn to primitive camping in the Badlands. According to Laura, “wilderness is important for us to maintain our mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health.”
She is especially interested in preserving and restoring the silence and dark night sky in our special places. This love of the Badlands and its special places is what attracted Laura to the Badlands Conservation Alliance. We look forward to working with Laura and welcome her talents and expertise on the Board.
