Backcountry Hunters & Anglers Name Chris Hennessey Northeast Public Lands Coordinator

Chris Hennessey has been named the Northeast Public Lands Coordinator for Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, a group formed to provide a boots-on-the ground voice to the conservation of public lands.

"Eastern sportsmen and women have always been some of the most outspoken defenders of our public lands and waters. Look no further than Theodore Roosevelt,” said BHA President and CEO Land Tawney. “We at BHA are proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with them in the ongoing efforts for conservation and public access. Adding two strong sportsmen advocates in the arena – Chris Hennessey in the Northeast and Josh Kaywood in the Southeast – will enable us to become even more effective in two previously underserved regions. We’re thrilled to have both of them join Team BHA.”

Chris Hennessey will work with BHA chapter leaders in New York and Pennsylvania to increase membership, maintain strong, capable chapters and mobilize sportsmen to advance sound natural resources policy.

He grew up in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with a passion for hunting and fishing. Now residing in State College, he pursues fish and game among the ridges and valleys of the Allegheny Mountains.

“I have fished, hunted and hiked on public lands from Maine to Washington, and I am a profound believer that those lands and the benefits they provide are a critical part of our American heritage,” Hennessey said. “I’m proud to be working with like-minded folks in New York and Pennsylvania to preserve our wild spaces for future generations.”
