Community Service

Wausau School Forest –

WSF had the pleasure to assist the Wausau School Foundation in the development and building of a new education center at the Wausau School Forest. Prior to the election referendum, WSF helped raise funding for the infrastructure work, such as electrical and fiber-optics for internet and communication. WSF continues to assist with additional needs for the completion of this project.
