Mayor 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.
