Growing up in Michigan’s elk home range my entire life I have seen many changes with the herd. I believe it’s our responsibility to protect, maintain and enhance the habitat of northern Michigan.
Vision for Future: I want to help educate those who may want to learn more about our crown jewel. I hope to help build the organization to something that will be sustainable for many generations to come.
As a forester, I know that managing our timber is best way to ensure the long-term health of our natural resources and rural communities. As a hunter, I know that the only way to create the habitat our wildlife need is through forest management. As a conservationist, I am a part of this organization because I believe that those interests that benefit Michigan’s elk herd also benefit our people and our natural resources.
Vision for Future: To unite Michiganders who share these passions so we can advocate for positive change, educate those who do not understand our mission and ensure that future generations will have a healthy elk herd to enjoy.
Ever since I was a kid I’ve always admired elk and especially the herd we have right here in Michigan! Hunting and conservation of our elk herd has been a life long passion of mine. The MECA is the perfect way for me to be directly involved with bettering what our state can provide for our elk herd!
Vision for Future: In the future I’d love to see better representation of our elk in Michigan and for the MECA to grow into a state wide recourse for all things relation to hunting and conservation of our elk herd!
