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.

Southwest Oregon has some of the worlds greatest natural treasures and to be given the opportunity to have a voice in how those resources are allocated is an amazing opportunity and responsibilty that I’m honored to be entrusted with. I look forward to working with all interested stakeholders in protecting and increasing the quality of our treasured wild places.
