Effective Advocacy for Coldwater Resource Conservation: Tips and Tools for Individuals and Organizations
The conference committee is currently developing a workshop for individuals and organizations interested in learning how advocate for rules, policies, regulations, budgets, and programs that support the protection and conservation of critical natural resources such as water and land which in turn support the long term viability of coldwater resources and angling. The presentations will include case studies of citizens using their voice to affect change at the local, state, and national level. Attendees will hear presentations by staff representing Pennsylvania's Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Department of Environmental Protection. Additionally, Trout Unlimited Office of Government Affairs will talk about the new Action Center webpage. After the presentations, there will be a facilitated audience based Q&A session.
