The new Colorado Parks and Wildlife Director, Jeff Davis, was formally voted in by the CPW Commission on April 6 on a unanimous vote. He was selected on March 20. He had served as the State of Washington Department of Fish and Game’s Director of Conservation Policy. A nationwide search and competitive process was conducted.
Mr. Davis briefly addressed (virtually) the CPW Commission at the April 6 Commission meeting. He noted that in his 20-plus years with State of Washington Fish and Game he experienced several transitions “and that all transitions have led to opportunities for transformations” and looks forward to working with CPW staff, Commission, state and local officials, tribes, and stakeholders, “to realize our full potential at CPW.” He also thanked Acting Director Dugan for her assistance. Mr. Davis will begin serving as Director on May 1.
