"The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is very proud to have Darlene serving as agriculture's representative on this board," said Casey Langan, WFBF spokesman. "Her real-life experience both in the classroom and on the farm will give her an opportunity to educate others on the board about agricultural issues, practices and educational resources."

The Wisconsin Environmental Education Board was created by the State Legislature in 1990. It identifies and establishes priorities for environmental education in Wisconsin in consultation with the UW-Extension, Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education, teacher training institutions, conservation and environmental groups, youth organizations, and nature and environmental centers. The board is also charged with making grants for environmental education programs and seeking private funds in support of the grants program.

WEEB is made up for representatives from education, industry, political and environmental sectors. Arneson's next term as the agriculture representative runs from July, 2012 through June, 2015.

Arneson has a strong background in agricultural education and involvement in the Agriculture in the Classroom program on the county and state level. She is a 1985 graduate of UW-Madison with a degree in agricultural education, and was the agriculture instructor at Cashton and Cambridge High Schools from 1986-1991.

She and her husband John were in a dairy partnership from 1989-2000. She is also a past president of the Dane County Farm Bureau and Wisconsin FFA Alumni State Council.
