Lynden Sculpture Garden

Bob Retko tended the Lynden Sculpture Garden  long before it took on that name or mission.

Retko grew up nearby in River Hills. He first wandered onto the grounds off Brown Deer Road with a friend when he was 10 years old. But it was during his teenage summers that Retko was hired to help tend the grounds.

“I worked through high school an then I went to UW-Stevens Point and earned biology and natural resources degrees,” Retko says.
