Craig Mortimore, Renewable Energy Programs Coordinator
Following a long career with the Nevada Department of Wildlife, which took him to every corner of the state, Craig took a brief stab at retirement. With the free time that came with it, he pursued his favorite activities free of deadlines and budget limitations.These included wildlife art, hunting, fishing, camping and the occasionally productive cheering of his beloved San Francisco Giants. Then separation anxiety emerged and with it the desire to re-engage with the conservation community. He brings his background in wildlife management and public policy to his new duties. A life-long Nevadan, Craig met his bride Suzette in South Africa and together they find the best recipe for life requires the ingredients of their three daughters and two granddaughters. This formula also requires a daily seasoning of laughter. (Craig is the one on the left)
