Duck hunter James McPhee, representing himself and other duck hunters concerned about the PHF wetlands habitat drainage and degradation, has contacted APH through me. Additionally, he has had conversations with Tom Rothe, Joe Meehan, Doug Hill and other management level personnel at ADF&G. I suggested to him, with Joe’s concurrence, that those who share his concerns and have viewpoints and advice to offer which would be of value, should all get together and talk about pathways to solutions. This is a great opportunity to broaden APH’s and ADF&G’s mission of habitat stewardship.
Very briefly, here’s what everyone brings to the table
James McPhee waterfowl hunter
Herman Griese retired wildlife biologist, APH board member
Tom Rothe retired wildlife biologist
Nathaniel Emery wildlife biologist
Wayne Bowman retired, APH dedicated volunteer and habitat advocate
Bob Neubauer founding APH board member and habitat advocate
Lisa Jaeger/Terry Boyle hunters, fishers, outdoor enthusiasts, previous APH board member, volunteers, strong habitat advocates
Joe Meehan Director, Lands & Refuge Program, ADF&G
Doug Hill Palmer Hay Flats Refuge Manager, ADF&G
In checking with Joe Meehan’s schedule, considering he will be out of town from 4/19 – 4/29, following are options for a meeting:
Tuesday, April 16th 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday, May 7th 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, May 9th 6:30 p.m.
If you could RSVP with preferred date, I’d appreciate it. Also, if you’re not interested, I’d like to know also, and I’ll take you off the list.
Thanks, so much, for all you individually do for this incredible, important habitat!
