Durango, CO–The Conservation Lands Foundation’s deputy director John Wallin issued the following statement on today’s Senate confirmation of Tommy Beaudreau’s nomination as Deputy Secretary of the Department of Interior:
“Achieving the full promise of America’s public lands requires the type of collaborative leadership Mr. Beaudreau will bring to the Department of the Interior.
“He’s distinctly equipped to help Secretary Haaland and the Biden Administration transform how public lands are valued and managed in an inclusive way to navigate our current 21st Century needs–climate, biodiversity, economy, equity, public health–and beyond.
“We’ve seen his commitment to bold, community-driven solutions first hand and we look forward to being an active partner to achieve the ambitious goals for public lands protection that the Administration has set out.”
