About Us

The Wildlife Conservation Commission (WCC) is an eight-member commission that advises the Napa County Board of Supervisors on policy matters and funding proposals that preserve and enhance Napa County wildlife and their habitats.

The commission comprises four members representing the Public at Large, one Sportsperson/Angler, one Wildlife/Conservation representative, one youth representative between the age of 15 to 25, and one Planning, Building, Environmental Services Commission representative.

The Wildlife Conservation Commission operates under the framework set up by the Bylaws of the Napa County Wildlife Conservation Commission (PDF).
