It's alive: Illinois Conservation Congress back from the dead

Ralph LoosAs promised two years ago, DNR is reviving its Illinois Conservation Congress, scheduling a number of public meetings around the state this month and in March that will precede the actual Congress gathering set for September.

“Conservation Congress provides Illinois residents with a direct voice to help guide the future of protecting and enhancing the natural resources of our state, and I encourage individuals and organizations who share our passion for conservation and outdoor recreation in Illinois to register today,” DNR Director Marc Miller said in a statement released today. 

Miller noted that the mission of the Illinois Conservation Congress is to give hunters, anglers and other outdoor enthusiast in the state a chance to voice their opinions on actions to be taken by lawmakers.

• John A. Logan College, Carterville – Feb. 19 and 20
• Heartland Community College, Normal – Feb. 26 and 27
• WIU Quad Cities Campus, Moline – March 4 and 5
