Robert C. Schwalm 

Commissioner Schwalm, of Bethlehem, Lehigh County, was confirmed to serve the newly-created seat on the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Board of Commissioners in 2022.

Schwalm grew up in Branchdale, Schuylkill County, and has extensive experience in the outdoors. He has been a hunter in Pennsylvania for 52 years and has hunted in 20 states and three Canadian provinces.

He is a Hunter-Trapper Education Instructor and actively involved in mentoring youth hunters, in addition to involvement in many conservation organizations. He is especially proud of his involvement with the Jerry Zimmerman National Wild Turkey Federation Chapter JAKES event.

Schwalm has a bachelor's degree from Bloomsburg University in Education and is employed by LB Water in Selinsgrove as a sales consultant, where he'll put his business experience and sense of responsibility to work on the board.

"It's an honor and a privilege to serve on the Board of Game Commissioners. As a hunter and conservationist, I feel it is my responsibility to give back. I'm excited to work with the other commissioners to continue creating opportunities to recruit, reactivate and retain hunters and conservationists." – Commissioner Schwalm, District 9

*The new District 9 seat was created as a result of legislation introduced by Sen. Dan Laughlin, R-Erie. With the new district established, and Districts 7 and 8 realigned, the counties each of these districts share similar land features and wildlife habitats.
