Contact: John Culclasure, Assistant Director, Southeastern States
Last week, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) Southeastern States Assistant Director John Culclasure attended the National Wild Turkey Federation’s (NWTF) 44th Annual Convention and Conservation Conference in Nashville, TN.
CSF and NWTF have a long-standing working relationship and regularly partner on conservation policy initiatives at the state and federal levels.
On February 13-14, Culclasure attended NWTF’s Conservation Conference where natural resources professionals from across the country gathered to discuss conservation issues related to forest management, prescribed fire, habitat management on federal lands, wild turkey research and hunter recruitment, retention and reactivation. Speakers and attendees included representatives from state fish and wildlife agencies, state forest services, hunting conservation organizations, the United States Forest Service, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
“We are proud of our partnership with NWTF and appreciate the opportunity to attend the Convention and be involved with the Conservation Conference,” said Culclasure. Thank you to all the NWTF staff for putting on a top-notch event, and we look forward to continuing our work with NWTF to advance hunting heritage and science-based conservation policies.”
