EarthX is thrilled to announce that Cam Sholly, Superintendent of Yellowstone National Park, and Sid Miller, Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture, will join our EarthX Conservation Conference as keynote speakers on October 21. 

 

Superintendent Sholly oversees one of the largest national park operations in the world. During his tenure, he has expanded bison conservation efforts, invested extensively in combating non-native species, and developed a more focused approach to ecosystem management, sustainability, and future climate challenges. During the EarthX Conservation banquet celebrating Half-Earth DayTM, Superintendent Sholly will speak about the conservation practices that have shaped the 150-year history of one of America’s most unique and treasured national parks.

 

The conservation conference lunchtime keynote speaker will be Sid Miller, Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture. An eighth-generation farmer and rancher, Miller will address this year’s conference theme, which focuses on private land conservation practices and strategies in Texas.

Sid Miller
Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture
 
An eighth-generation farmer and rancher, Sid Miller is the 12th Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). He has devoted his life to promoting Texas agriculture, rural communities and the great state of Texas. Since taking office as Agriculture Commissioner, Commissioner Miller has brought real, common sense reform to TDA. Within six months in office, he eliminated a two-and-a-half-year backlog in organic certifications. He reshaped field operations to maximize efficiency for Texas taxpayers. This included increasing the number of consumer protection inspections by as much as 183 percent while slashing the miles traveled by TDA inspectors by more than half a million miles a year.
