Tara Wilhelmi, Center for Resilient Cities
Tara volunteers at Badger Rock Neighborhood Center, a project of Center for Resilient Cities, with its Community Market. She is the main contact with market vendors and shows up with her family at every market to set up. She also assists in planning, promoting, and adding little touches to the market that make people feel special. The Center for Resilient Cities wants you to know that her commitment has not gone unnoticed and we value her contributions to the Badger Rock Community and Beyond! (Photo by John Urban)

Tom Thoresen, Wisconsin Conservation Voices
Tom Thoresen’s commitment to conservation and to serving others is unparalleled. He is Wisconsin Conservation Voices’ longest-standing board member (since 2004); in fact Tom was the person who facilitated Wisconsin Conservation Voices’ membership at Community Shares of Wisconsin. Tom is a conservation hero and front-line volunteer. He is also a lead fundraiser and provides generous matching gifts for our annual Big Share campaign. There is no one in the world like Tom who is so deserving of being named a Backyard Hero. (Photo by John Urban)
