Northwoods Volunteer Connection Welcomes New Executive Director

February 2024—Northwoods Volunteer Con­nection (NVC), a nonprofit organization based in Tofte, MN, announces its new executive di­rector, Joanna “Jo” Swanson.

Since 2014, Northwoods Volunteer Connec­tion—a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit—has been dedicated to recruiting, training, and de­livering volunteers to work in and around the Superior National Forest of Minnesota. NVC’s mission is to promote stewardship of the Su­perior National Forest, Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, and surrounding wildlands by engaging volunteers and partner organizations in recreation and natural resource projects.

Jo comes to NVC with many years of nonprofit experience focusing on organizational develop­ment and volunteer engagement, most recently with the Superior Hiking Trail Association. “I began my career as a volunteer on public lands, and I am excited for this new challenge,” she says. “The Superior National Forest is an amaz­ing resource and it takes an incredible effort to maintain access to its recreational opportuni­ties.”

Northwoods Volunteer Connection is planning an exciting year of projects and is seeking volunteers! Learn more about NVC’s many opportunities at: www.northwoodsvolunteerconnection.org.
