On December 10, Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus Member Governor Rick Snyder appointed Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) Upper Midwestern States Manager Nick Buggia to serve on the Michigan Wildlife Council (MWC).
The council was created in 2013 to implement and oversee a public education campaign about the importance of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation and the American System of Conservation Funding. The MWC is comprised of nine members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate.
On his appointment, Buggia said, “As a lifelong Michigan hunter and angler, I look forward to serving on the council. It is important that we help people understand that sportsmen and women are the backbone of conservation, not only in Michigan but across the country.”
