CLC instructor attends national conference

Central Lakes College Natural Resources instructor and certified wildlife biologist Dr. Bill Faber attended a Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters conference in Minneapolis last week.
There, Faber met with two national conservation supporters: Ted Roosevelt IV, the great-grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt, and Collin O’Mara, the executive director and president of the National Wildlife Federation in Washington, D.C. 
The event was held to discuss the importance of the Boundary Waters for hunters, anglers and all wildlife enthusiasts, and the threat to critical habitat and recreation areas posed by proposed sulfide ore copper mines.
The event was sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation, Minnesota Conservation Federation and the Minnesota Division, Izaak Walton League of America in support of the Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters coalition.
