NEVADA CONSERVATION LEAGUE NEWS RELEASE – The Nevada Conservation League has named April Mastroluca executive director. The former Nevada Assemblywoman will officially start with the leading statewide conservation organization August 26.

“All of us at the Nevada Conservation League are very excited and looking forward to working with April Mastroluca as our new Executive Director. Her leadership, experience, integrity and dedication will help make NCL a more powerful force than ever before,” said Steve Rypka, chair of the NCL 501C-3 board.

“The selection of April Mastroluca as the new executive director of NCL will further our efforts as the leading independent political voice of the Nevada conservation community,” said Robert Buntjer, chair of the NCL board.

NCL works to make shared values a priority for Nevada through effective advocacy and the election of pro-environment candidates. Over the past decade, NCL has been a unifying force in Nevada’s conservation community leading efforts to clean up Nevada’s air and water, transitioning Nevada to a clean energy economy and ensuring protection for Nevada’s most important natural resources and wildlife.
