Access and Habitat Regional Council Members

Regional Councils

Six regional councils serve in an advisory capacity to the A & H Board. The councils provide the initial review of grant proposals and forward their recommendations to the A & H Board. Composed of landowner, hunter, and public volunteers, Council members bring grass roots expertise and local knowledge to the review process.
