Community Conversations: Hunting and conservation
February 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Community Conversations is an opportunity to join local experts and community members virtually. This program series addresses important issues, from affordable housing to food insecurity, and their connection to conservation. One-hour Zoom sessions will include brief presentations, time for questions and answers, and the opportunity to connect with others.
This month, we will explore the following question: can conservation practices and hunting co-exist?
Meet the Speakers:
Brandon Dale grew up with hunting and fishing traditions that were passed down in his family in South Louisiana. He is an avid hunter (waterfowl, turkey, deer, small game) and fly fishing guide. Now living in NYC for graduate and medical school, he finds solace in the woods and waters of the Hudson Valley, Southern CT, the Catskills, and Long Island. He is the New York Ambassador for Hunters of Color, Board member for New York Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, Vice President of NYC Trout Unlimited and Region 2 Representative for the New York State Conservation Fund Advisory Board. Brandon is committed to conserving and passing along the traditions of the land, especially for underrepresented hunters and anglers. As an NYC resident, he’s passionate about increasing hunting and fishing access and opportunity for folks living in urban areas and building community among NYC and Tri-State area, while improving and protecting our public lands and waters.
