We heard from Tom Wolf recently that Trout Unlimited hired Dean Finnerty as the new Southwest Oregon field representative for the Sportsman’s Conservation Project.
Per Dean’s blog: I’ll be working with a wide variety of stakeholders on issues related to high quality habitat for Salmon, Steelhead, Trout, Deer, Elk and other wildlife throughout the region. I’ll be primarily focused on working with groups on the “Copper/Salmon Wilderness area” in the upper Elk River Water Shed as well as the “Elk River Salmon Enhancement Area” (ERSEA) near Port Orford, Oregon. I’ll also be working on the “O&C Lands” issues as that legislation moves forward in the coming months.
Congratulations Dean on the new challenge.
