NRA Employee Named To Sportmen's Council

Friday, March 31, 2006

A national “Sporting Conservation Council” has been created to advise the Secretary of the Interior on resource conservation issues of importance to the hunting community.  Among the topics that will be addressed is access to hunting on federal lands.  The twelve-member Council was announced during the North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference in Columbus, Ohio.  Susan Recce, NRA’s Director of Conservation, Wildlife and Natural Resources, was tapped to serve on the Council for a two-year term.  In addition to access, the Council is expected to advise the Interior Secretary about wildlife conservation initiatives that benefit hunting and wildlife.  In making the announcement about the Council, outgoing Secretary Gale Norton said that a “careful appraisal determined that no other entities exist that adequately represent the views of the hunting and conservation communities and she therefore deemed it worthwhile to create the Council under the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act.”
