TWS Involvement: Past Board member, Lead (Pb) & Wildlife Workshops; Legislative and Conservation Committees, ORTWS liaison to Oregon Conservation Fund/Task Force.
Interest: While numerous conservation challenges are important to our professional community, conservation funding is unquestionable the overarching priority.
