October 04, 2010

 Dobbs Named to Alabama Conservation Advisory Board

 
Joseph (Joey) Dobbs of Birmingham has been appointed to the Alabama Conservation Advisory Board by Gov. Bob Riley.
 
Dobbs, an avid outdoorsman and conservationist, founded Landscape Workshop, Inc. in 1986 and now employs 210 in three locations – Bessemer, Foley and Auburn/Opelika.
 
Dobbs, a former board member for the Gulf Coast Conservation Association, currently serves as director of the Birmingham Association for Landscape Professionals and is on the board of the Birmingham Construction Industry Authority, the Alabama chapter of the American Subcontractor Association and the Urban Studio Council at Auburn University’s School of Horticulture.
 
Dobbs also serves as a board member of several charitable organizations – Children’s Hospital’s Committee for the Future and Magic Moments and is a founding member of the Tum-Tum Tree Foundation.
 
Dobbs replaces Dr. Wayne May of Tuscaloosa on the Conservation Advisory Board.
 
The Conservation Advisory Board is composed of 10 members appointed by the governor for alternating terms of six years, and three ex-officio members - the Governor, the Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries, and the Director of the Alabama Cooperative Extension system. The Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources serves as the ex-officio secretary of the board.
 
The board assists in formulating policies for the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and examines all rules and regulations. By a two-thirds vote of the members present and with the governor’s approval, the board can amend, change or repeal current rules and regulations or create and promulgate additional rules and regulations. The Board also assists in publicizing the department’s programs and activities.
 
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Parks, State Lands, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
