This year, our slate of folks running for the Board includes four fantastic people who want to help Oak Heritage thrive, and increase conservation in southeast Indiana.

Kate Johnson

- What you do for work? What do you do for in nature?
I teach philosophy at Hanover College. Two of my courses are Philosophy of the Environment and Animal Philosophy. I also taught Ecofeminism in the past, and would love to do it again sometime. My husband Don Carrell and I live on ~40 acres, and we try to raise most of our food with a vegetable garden, chickens, goats, and sheep. I also enjoy my flower garden. We are letting the majority of our land return from being overgrazed when we bought to natural habitat. It’s been fun to watch the transformation.

- Where do you call home?
We live in Hanover, my kids went to Southwestern Schools, but our address is Madison.

- Why do you want to be on the Oak Heritage board?
Of the many things to feel bad about right now, the way we treat the natural world is one of the most abiding and most serious. Rather than just feel bad, I’d like to do something about it with some like-minded people. I like the local, grassroots feel of Oak Heritage Conservancy.

Glene Mynehardt

- What you do for work and for fun in nature?
I teach various biology courses at Hanover College, including my favorite - entomology. I enjoy macrophotography and am always on the lookout for insects that inhabit our local natural areas.

- Where do you live?
I live in Jeffersonville (Clark County)

- Why do you want to be on the Oak Heritage board?
I want to be part of something that will help connect me and my students to local efforts related to conserving and enjoying our local biota. As a Biology professor at Hanover, I also feel a strong urge to keep Daryl Karns’ legacy alive and am really honored to be part of the group.

Jamie Schantz

- What do you do for work and for fun in nature?
I'm retired. My husband and I have three grown children and three grandsons. I'm active in two quilt guilds and one rug hooking group. I joined the board of Batesville Memorial Public Library and found that I loved helping with projects, like our new outdoor Reading Garden with native trees and plants. I love to garden and enjoy all types of needlework.

- Where do you live?
We've lived outside of Batesville, Indiana (Ripley County) since 1975.

- Why do you want to serve on the Oak Heritage board?
It sounds contrived but to save the woods. My family all spend time together walking the woods. My mother used to take us for walks and taught us all the wildflowers. I worry that their habitat is dwindling.   

Richard Stoll

- What you do for work and for fun in nature?
I left the corporate world as an IT manager and now work part-time as a Handyman. For fun my wife Jennifer and I enjoy restoring wildlife habitat at our farm in Versailles Indiana. It's an ongoing process planting native prairie grasses\wild flowers and shrubs to create pollinator and Quail habitat which are in steep decline.

- Where you live?
I live in Cincinnati, Ohio but spend most of our time in Indiana down at the farm.

- Why do you want to be on the Oak Heritage board?
I have a passion for preserving green space and restoring land to benefit wildlife, pollinators and the ecosystem. I want to join the board the help with outreach, membership recruitment, fundraising and cultivating donors to make Oak Heritage a stronger and financially sustainable organization.
