Pennsylvania Chapter Board

Adam_Eckley_Hedshot.jpgChairman Adam Eckley of Bloomsburg, Columbia County

Region: Northeast

Adam is a native Pennsylvanian and a lifelong hunter and angler. Having grown up hunting, fishing and recreating in the mountains and spring creeks of central Pennsylvania, he is a firm believer in the importance of the conservation of the wide  open spaces of our public lands and water resources.

Adam is a strong advocate for access and opportunity for everyone and was responsible for the launch of a successful mentorship program within the Pennsylvania chapter, where he has been a board member since 2021. His interests are broad and diverse and he enjoys activities ranging from backpacking to fly fishing to bow hunting.

When he’s not busy mentoring his two young sons, you’ll find him each spring chasing long beards in the big woods of the PA wilds.

Region: Southwest

Keith began hunting and fishing as an adult in 2015.  If he’s not in a tree with his bow chasing whitetails, you can find him on a trout stream with a fly rod.  Keith also enjoys hiking, bicycling, kayaking, and exploring the beautiful public lands Pennsylvania has to offer.

“It’s hard to quantify what public lands mean to me," Keith says. "Without them, I’d have nowhere to hunt or fish. I know how many special experiences public lands have afforded me in the outdoors. I can’t think of a better way to give back than to help ensure future generations have the same opportunity.” 

 

 

Nick LongTreasurer Nick Long of Mifflintown, Juniata County

Region: Southcentral

A central Pennsylvania native, Nick spends lots of time in the outdoors near his home with family hunting, fishing and hiking. He also travels to the western U.S. and Canada in pursuit of antelope, elk, mule deer and moose.

“I am eager to help in any way I can, and I look forward to more events such as pint nights, chapter hikes, fundraisers, awareness and educational events, and more,” Nick says.
