Description

Please join us for the 2017 Conservation Coalition Partners Meeting!

With over 35 conservation organizations from across the state, the Conservation Coalition develops the Common Agenda each year to prioritize our legislative goals and objectives. Through this process, we develop one voice to champion our conservation priorities with elected officials.

We need YOU at this meeting. We'll discuss the hot issues and legislative priorities for the upcoming legislative year as we listen to presentations and reports from our issue team leaders.

Lunch is provided with a $10 suggested donation.

Please RSVP so we can have an accurate head count. We look forward to seeing you in Columbia.
