We are extremely pleased to have George Meyer addressing the Manitowoc County Lakes Association
on Thursday, Sept 29, 2016 6:30pm.
This meeting was postponed due to illness. Please check back for new date.
Open to the public. Guests are encouraged to attend this timely presentation. George has been recognized for his effective and responsible tenure at the DNR, and remains a strong advocate of environmental policy and water protection in the State of Wisconsin. George is currently Executive Director of The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, the only statewide organization dedicated to protecting fish and wildlife habitat, fishing, hunting, trapping, and other outdoor sporting and recreational opportunities. WWF develops and advances policies that protect fish and wildlife habitat, and that promote public access to lands and water for outdoor recreation. Previously, George’s career with the DNR spanned more than 30 years. An attorney, he led the DNR’s enforcement division for 10 years, and was appointed by Governor Thompson as Secretary, a position he held from 1993 to 2001. He has taught conservation and environmental policy at Lawrence University for two years.
To promote strong conservation policy, Wisconsin Wildlife Federation intends to:
- Work with members of Wisconsin State Legislature and occasionally members of the US Congress.
- Participate in rulemaking processes to ensure that the law is meaningfully implemented at the administrative level.
- Work in coalition with other organizations to develop and advance policies important to members.
