Mike Clifford Posted October 23, 2009 Report Share Posted October 23, 2009 I'll be attending the following event this weekend to represent ISA conservation interests. My registration was before an initial 10/15 deadline. I'm not seeing a deadline on their site now, so perhaps interested parties can still register and attend. If you would like to do so, please call them for confirmation. http://www.dnr.state.il.us/nrab/cc.htm BTW- There is a LOT of information to digest in these links. Plan to spend at least a couple of hours to educate yourselves fully. Are you an environmentalist, hunter or fisher, educator, someone who recreates in the outdoors, or someone else who works to improve the future of conservation and outdoor recreation in Illinois? Help create that better future at Conservation Congress.
