2015 Annual Spring Hearings

4/13/2015 @ 6:30 

Link here for all info


 We have one night a year where all Wisconsin voices can be heard on many issues regarding all wildlife and natural resource issues in Wisconsin.  In each county a Spring Hearing is held for all WI residents.   We vote on questions initiated by committees, introduce resolutions and vote in new delegates every year.  Wisconsin is the only state with such an advisory arm to decision makers!!!!!

 WE NEED DELEGATES TO USHER IN 21ST CENTURY ECOSYSTEM-BASED MANAGEMENT  

Consider running as a delegate. Recruit like-minded people within your community to attend, nominate and vote for you!  (see PDF below on being a delegate) The WCC is an advisory arm to the DNR and the Natural Resources Board.   Wisconsin state law mandates that WCC resolutions must be considered when legislation is being written.  Traditionally, this Congress has been dominated by hunters, trappers and hounders.

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to raise awareness of Wisconsin’s wildlife, land and water resources by connecting with like-minded people across our state. Wisconsin's natural resources are held in Public Trust for all to enjoy for generations to come. Coexistence with wildlife should be of the highest priority. Exploitation of Wisconsin's wildlife, land and water is not in the best interests of our fragile ecosystems and negates the proud heritage of Wisconsin's natural resources.
