Board chooses Young
The board of directors for the Mississippi Wildlife Federation has selected Brad Young to lead the organization, effective April 22. Young has served as Black Bear Program leader with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks for the past 10 years. Young, who grew up in Cleveland and currently lives in Madison, will provide invaluable insight into conservation programs and challenges within the state and the Southeastern region as a whole. He graduated from Mississippi State University (MSU) with a B.S. in wildlife sciences and a M.S. in forestry. His work with Mississippi’s endangered black bear population has provided him with the opportunity to work with a wide variety of public and private natural resource organizations from all over the state. Young’s previous position also allowed him to work with a multitude of private landowners, concerned citizens, and public officials who have a vested interest in natural resource management within this state. The Federation feels this ability to work with the public as well as other natural resource entities, both public and private, is one of his strongest assets.
