Wildes Makes New Appointment.
Seeks to rejuvenate the Englewood Environmental Commission.
Englewood Mayor Michael Wildes appointed Carolyn Stenzel of Sunset Avenue
to the Englewood Environmental Commission. “I am honored to appoint
Carolyn,” Wildes said. “She comes highly recommended, has
an excellent reputation in Englewood and has a deep-rooted love of nature.”
Stenzel has lived in Englewood since 1965. She and her husband raised
their three children in the City. Before having children, Stenzel was
a registered nurse. She later returned to school to obtain degrees in
education and biology.
Her love of nature fueled her involvement in the Flat Rock Brook Nature
Center where she was one of the first trail guides in 1974. Stenzel was
a member of the Board of Trustees for Flat Rock Brook and also served
as president for two years in the 1990s. She is an honorary Trustee and
continues to be connected with the center. In the 1980s Stenzel was also
a naturalist at the James A. McFaul Environmental Center in Wyckoff .
The commission consists of seven members, one city employee and six volunteers.
Mayor Wildes stated that he has “sought to rejuvenate the Englewood
Environmental Commission with the hopes of making it a more proactive
body.” He appointed three new commissioners, Ron Johnson, Crystal
Brown and Erica Martinez, in August and recently organized and hosted
many of the commissioners at a viewing of Al Gore’s documentary
“An Inconvenient Truth,” which highlighted the affects of
global warming and a deteriorating environment.
Stenzel will complete the unexpired term of Joseph Hoyle.
