Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) staff joined conservation representatives from across the country in Denver, Colorado, at the 84th Annual North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference.
Hosted by the Wildlife Management Institute, this week-long event is dedicated to discussions related to wildlife conservation policies and programs. CSF staff participated in discussions on landscape connectivity and wildlife corridors, chronic wasting disease management, hunting and shooting sports participation, among many others.
In addition, member groups within the American Wildlife Conservation Partners met to discuss priorities for the upcoming Wildlife for the 21st Century Volume VI, a series of recommendations for the next administration.
Finally, CSF President Jeff Crane and Ducks Unlimited CEO Dale Hall selected this venue - surrounded by numerous conservation partners - to sign a memorandum of understanding with the intention of advancing the groups’ shared conservation goals.
CSF supported this year’s conference as a Bronze-level partner.
