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 Conservation Lobby Day 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 can’t ignore the tremendous support that exists for conservation.
On Conservation Lobby Day, you will have a chance to speak to both your state Representative and Senator about key conservation issues. In addition, you will receive skill and issue trainings that you can take away and apply when advocating back home. You will also have the opportunity to meet and network with others that share your conservation values.
This year, the conservation community will be fighting to make sure Wisconsin:
- Adopts a plan to attract and support clean energy jobs. Legislators vote to override the Governor’s veto of AB 138, the bill to restore the Independent
- DNR Secretary.
- Protects drinking water quality.
- Preserves groundwater quantity for future generations.
Legislators need to continue to hear from you! Keep the conservation momentum going!
