Get Involved

We could not provide such great support for putting and keeping sheep on the mountains without our mostly volunteer-run committees. Committees are an integral part of the success we have had to this point and what we expect to accomplish in the future. Below you will find a description of each committee. Committees may meet via conference call on a monthly, quarterly, or as-needed basis. Get involved today by getting in touch with President Darryl Williams.



Getting the word out about what we do for wild sheep helps us get new members as well as funding for our research projects, on-the-ground sheep developments, Sheep Summit reports and more. This committee gathers content for the quarterly newsletter and digital media forms. Contact Beverly Valdez or Darryl Williams.
Annual Fundraising Banquet

Hosting a successful fundraiser makes sure we have funds to continue our mission. Being a part of the team that puts it together is rewarding and a great way to show your support for wild sheep. Contact Don Martin or Ken Crother.

If you happen to be on a guided hunt, fishing trip or other outdoor activity this year, please ask your outfitter to consider donating a hunt or trip to our 2018 Fundraising Banquet. Supporting wild sheep is a great cause, their donation is tax deductible, and the advertising and exposure they get will be good for business.
Give a Lamb a Drink

The “Give a Lamb a Drink” (GALAD) committee is just now forming. This committee has a goal of working with our sister organization, the Society of Bighorn Sheep Conservation, to install 90 additional Raincatcher Wildlife Water Systems to increase wild sheep numbers in the state. Learn more information about GALAD and join the team! Contact Mike Borel or Glen Pyne.
Legislative Affairs

This committee works with the Ca Department of Fish and Wildlife along with other conservation groups to make sure our goals are recognized and offer assistance as much as possible. Members of the committee may be asked to attend the bi-annual Sheep Summit meetings hosted by CA WSF as well as other meetings where wild sheep will be discussed or considered. Contact Don Priest or Kyle Meintzer.

The membership committee promotes and facilitates recruiting and renewing members who are passionate about wild sheep. Contact Shawn Wood.

One of the first actions of the CA WSF Board of Directors was to establish a Project Grant Committee to help solicit and select worthwhile activities. This committee has recommended, and the Board has funded, numerous projects since 2001 resulting in an increase in the number of sheep in California herds and raising the number of sheep hunting tags available. Learn more about projects and how to apply for project funding. Contact Vern Bleich or Don Priest.
Youth Outreach

As our youth are the future of hunting and wildlife conservation, we are establishing this committee to partner with Dr. Ryan Brock from Wild Sheep Foundation to make the Youth Wildlife Conservation Experience (YWCE) part of our banquet and encourage youth to get involved in all aspects of putting and keeping wild sheep on the mountains. Contact Glen Pyne.
