Legislative Outreach

One of the most effective ways to participate in making sure that conservation is on your legislator’s minds is to visit them. We are told by members of our community who have worked on legislative matters for a long time that legislators really like to have a face to associate with a cause. Giving your legislators a friendly face to think of when they think about fighting to save wildlife habitats will help them when the time for a vote comes up. Many of our local chapters organize rallying days when groups of supporters visit together, or coordinate attendance at council meetings or other important gatherings where decisions are made.
