MADISON, Wis. -

Gov. Scott Walker has appointed wildlife biologist Gary Zimmer to the Natural Resources Board.

He announced the appointment Friday during a tour of forestry businesses in northwestern Wisconsin.

The seven-member board sets policy for the Department of Natural Resources.

Zimmer worked as a regional wildlife biologist at the Ruffed Grouse Society. He also worked 18 years for the U.S. Forest Service, and for 12 of those years he was a district biologist.

Walker says Zimmer has a long and distinguished career and his knowledge will be a "huge asset" to the board. The governor says Zimmer will be able to advocate for sustainable ways to manage the state's forests.
