The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation appointed Dan Forster, director of the Wildlife Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, to its board of directors.
"Dan is a great addition to our board, bringing extensive experience in state agency management," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. "We welcome his contributions and unique perspective as we strive to increase boating and fishing participation nationwide, thereby conserving our nation's aquatic natural resources."
"Georgia is the bass capital of the world, so I know that fishing and boating play such an important role in continuing to encourage and entice people to participate in outdoor recreation," Forster said. "This provides tremendous opportunities for family time and results in an economic impact of staggering proportions."
Forster provides leadership and policy directives for an agency that is responsible for hunting opportunities on more than a million acres of public land and the management of 110 wildlife management areas.
