Norvie Enns is a new member of the council representing the public-at-large. He is a retired aircraft mechanic trained at the Northrop Aeronautical Institute in Inglewood, California.
Mr. Enns knows the public lands under the RAC’s purview very well through his outdoor pursuits, and has demonstrated a commitment to sound public land management in his past volunteer service to the BLM. He served seven years on a subgroup of the Northeast California-Sierra Front BLM RACs, helping to develop the management plan for the Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area. He is a member of the Reno Gem and Mineral Society and the California Federation of Mineralogical Societies, where he has served 17 years on the public land access committee. In addition to public at large representation, he would bring to the RAC knowledge of gemology and mineralogy, commonly called rock hounding, a popular pursuit in northeast California and northwest Nevada.
