Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Ruffed Grouse Society partner to advance conservation goals
|WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and the Ruffed Grouse Society signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the shared goals of the two organizations to advance science-based wildlife management, wildlife conservation and the sportsmen’s heritage.
The partnership will provide an opportunity to combine CSF’s legislative knowledge and network of federal and state sportsmen’s caucuses with the vast RGS membership of upland hunters to effectively guide policy in a way that encourages the active participation of sportsmen and women in the legislative process.
“We look forward to collaborating with the Ruffed Grouse Society on advancing our common mission of protecting and advancing conservation of grouse, woodcock, and other game and non-game species,” CSF President Jeff Crane said. “RGS chapters across the country include volunteers who embrace the hunting tradition and understand the importance of protecting it for future generations.”
“We are honored to partner with the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, an organization that makes a difference by influencing legislation and policy to benefit wildlife conservation across the nation,” RGS President and CEO John Eichinger said. “With a larger and more effective voice, together we will enhance our ability to preserve our sporting traditions by creating healthy forest habitat for game and non-game wildlife species.”
According to the CSF and RGS, the two possess resources that, when combined, will advance conservation goals and benefit sportsmen and women at both the state and national levels.
