Florence County annual fish and wildlife public meeting April 9

Wisconsin residents will be able to nominate and elect local representatives to the Wisconsin Conservation Congress and express support or non-support for a range of advisory questions on natural resources management issues at the Conservation Congress’ spring meetings held in every county of the state on Monday, April 9 starting at 7 p.m.

The county meetings are held jointly with the Department of Natural Resources Spring Hearings. The Wisconsin Conservation Congress is a statutorily established advisory group to the state Natural Resources Board (NRB).

“In Florence County, the joint DNR and Conservation Congress annual county meeting will be held at the Natural Resource/Wild Rivers Interpretive Center, lower level conference room, in Florence,” said Dale Ebert, chair of the Florence County delegation.

At the meeting, citizens will have the opportunity to comment and register their support or non-support for congress proposals that could someday become the rules that regulate fishing, hunting, trapping and other outdoor recreation activities in Wisconsin. They may also submit resolutions addressing conservation needs or concerns they observe.
