CONSERVATION LOBBY DAY 2010!!!
On January 26,2010, join citizens from across Wisconsin at the State Capitol to tell legislators that you expect them to vote well on natural resource issues.Since the first Lobby Days in 2005, it's grown from 100 citizens to more than 500!Each year, representatives from nearly 100 conservation groups from across Wisconsin descend on the Capitol to share their conservation values with their legislators. When hundreds of citizens speak with a unified voice, legislators simply cannot ignore the tremendous support that exists for conservation.On Conservation Lobby Day, you will speak to both your state Representative and state Senator about key conservation issues. In addition, you will receive skill and issue trainings that you can apply when advocating at home. You will also have the opportunity to meet and network with others who share your conservation values.This year, the conservation community will be fighting to make sure:1.Wisconsin adopts a statewide plan to tackle global warming.2.Wisconsin returns to an Independent DNR Secretary and has timely votes on Natural Resource Board Appointments.3.Wisconsin has clean, abundant drinking water and a statewide conservation plan.4.Wisconsin protects drinking water supplies by making sure we safely spread agricultural, municipal, and industrial waste.Legislators need to continue to hear from you!Keep the conservation momentum going!JOIN US FOR CONSERVATION LOBBY DAY 2010JANUARY 26th @ THEWISCONSIN STATE CAPITOLHope to see all my fellow Wisconsinites there!AmberDawn
