MBCP Steering Committee

A small steering committee composed of representatives from key state and federal government agencies and NGOs was formed in November 2014 to help direct the Initiative 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 MBCPsteering committee meets on the third tuesday every two months, and meetings are open to all who wish to attend. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on January 17th, 2017. Please contact Gwen Brewer or Colin Rees for more information about meeting schedule and venue.
