MBCP Steering Committee

steering committee.jpg

A steering committee composed of representatives from key state and federal government agencies and NGOs was formed in November 2014 to help direct the Partnership and the activities of the MBCP Director.

The primary objectives of the committee are to:

  • Develop projects to support the MBCP and other regional or national initiatives
  • Provide a forum for collaboration among those working in land and wildlife management and conservation of birds.

The MBCP Steering Committee meets every other month, and meetings are open to all who wish to attend. Please contact Gwen Brewer or Colin Rees for more information about meeting schedule and venue.
