Thanks to Sierra Club and others, the annual Conservation Education Day on the Hill will be held Wednesday, February 19. This is the day that conservation/environment advocates can join like-minded people to talk to our state senators and representatives about key issues.
In years past, the day has included training about how to talk to legislators, with talking points on the key issues, as well as appointments ready-made. Preregistration is recommended.
It’s a heartwarming experience to wander the halls of the State Legislature and see all the people with the green stickers that signify we’re there to speak for natural lands and waters. There will be a carpool for TCWP members who attend. For more information or to register, call or write Sandra K. Goss at 865.583-3967 or firstname.lastname@example.org by February 10.
