Conservation Lobby Day--Jan. 26, 2010

"Each year citizens from across Wisconsin descend on the Capitol to share their conservation values with their Legislators. Since the first Conservation Lobby Day in 2005, it has grown from just 100 citizens to more than 600!"

Citizen lobbyists will focus on these four issues:

1.Preserve Groundwater: Wisconsin’s Buried Treasure: Manage Wisconsin’s groundwater resources to preserve drinking water supplies, lakes, streams, and wetlands.

2.Stop Global Warming. Address the threats of global warming in Wisconsin through clean, renewable energy jobs and energy conservation.

3.Restore Conservation Integrity: Return Wisconsin to an Independent DNR Secretary and timely appointments of Natural Resources Board members

4.Protect Wisconsin’s Drinking Water: Protect Wisconsin’s drinking water supplies by making sure we safely spread agricultural, municipal, and industrial waste.

Activities last all day, with free lunch included.  It's topped off with a wild-game feed at the Inn on the Park.  To find out more, click here.  Registration Ends Tuesday, January 19th!
