RCI’s Jeremy Drew has been appointed to the Nevada Sagebrush Ecosystem Council. Governor Brian Sandoval appointed a total of twelve Nevadans – nine voting and three ex-Officio members – to the Council. The Council will focus on implementing a strategy for precluding the listing of the Greater Sage-grouse on the Endangered Species List.
“Precluding the listing of the Greater Sage-grouse is of utmost importance to our state,” Governor Brian Sandoval said. “I am pleased that each of these twelve Nevadans has agreed to work together to serve our state and ensure the continued survival of the Greater Sage-grouse.”
Created by Executive Order 2012-19, the Council will also be responsible for providing direction on conservation and land management policy and will oversee the work of the newly formed Sagebrush Ecosystem Technical Team, a full-time interagency initiative that will carry out policies set by the Council.
Jeremy Drew will serve on the Council representing sportsmen.
