Eric Petlock grew up chasing ducks and black-tailed deer in California and currently lives along the Nevada/California border. He has worked on sportsmen's and public lands issues in Nevada since 2008, where he has strong relationships within the community.
Eric began working in the conservation field on Upper Snake River salmon and steelhead policy, focusing on Nevada's historic salmon and steelhead runs. More recently, he worked on energy policy and renewable energy siting on public lands in Nevada. When he's not up to his elbows in policy work, you might run into him in a remote river canyon, in a marsh hunting waterfowl, or chasing chukar with his trusty Labrador, Scooby.
Eric is working as part of a partnership between the TRCP and Nevada Bighorns Unlimited to advance BLM backcountry and build an active constituency of sportsmen in Nevada to ensure that renewable and conventional energy development projects are done responsibly.
