Each Wednesday from February 21 through March 14, CFM will convene a group of conservationists at the Missouri State Capitol to meet with legislators and discuss important topics and legislative initiatives concerning conservation and natural resources.
“It is critical for elected officials to hear from citizens, especially their constituents. At CFM, we have created themed days to teach conservationists how to best communicate with their state representative and senator. We will work through CFM members and affiliate leaders to gather participants. Collectively, these four days plus Conservation Day at the Capitol on March 27 will showcase the diversity, depth and strength of CFM before our state leadership,” said Brandon Butler, CFM Executive Director.
February 21, 2018 – Hunters, Trappers & Anglers
February 28, 2018 – Forestry
March 7, 2018 – Parks and Recreation
March 14, 2018 – Land, Water and Environment
Each day will have a similar agenda:
