The Conservation Alliance board and staff spent two days this week in Washington, DC. The trip included a full day of board education on which the board heard presentations about conservation policy, including Wilderness, National Monuments, Land and Water Conservation Fund, the American Arctic, and the prospects for conservation legislation passing in 2012. On the second day, the Alliance board took to Capitol Hill, and met with Congressional offices to voice business support for legislation to protect wild lands and waterways.
