STONEVILLE, MS -- Delta Wildlife and Delta Farmers Advocating Resource Management (Delta F.A.R.M.), two natural resource and conservation stewardship organizations serving the Mississippi Delta, have announced that Tim Huggins has been named Executive Director.  Huggins has been a staff member at both organizations for more than a decade.

“Our Rice Stewardship Partnership has worked closely with Tim for more than five years, and he’s got significant knowledge of the rice industry at the local level,” said Josh Hankins, USA Rice director of the Rice Stewardship Partnership.  “He knows how to successfully deploy conservation programs in his region, and his work has been vital to the success, growth, and adoption of our partnership efforts in Mississippi.  We look forward to working with Tim in his new role.”     

Delta Wildlife was founded in 1990 by farmers, sportsmen, and business leaders to establish an organization dedicated to the conservation, enhancement, and restoration of the wildlife and natural resources of the Delta and part-Delta counties of northwest Mississippi.  Delta F.A.R.M., founded in 1998, is an association of growers and landowners in the region that strive to implement recognized agricultural practices to conserve, restore, and enhance the environment of northwest Mississippi.
