Residents invited to participate in Wisconsin Conservation Congress resolution process

The Wisconsin Conservation Congress (WCC) invites all Wisconsinites to take part in its annual spring hearing process.

The WCC is an independent organization of residents that advises the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on how to responsibly manage Wisconsin’s natural resources.

Wisconsinites can submit proposed resolutions via the online process now through Feb. 26. Resolutions must meet the following criteria:

• The concern must be of statewide impact.

• The concern must be practical, achievable and reasonable.

• The concern must be within the mission and vision of the WCC.

An individual may submit no more than two resolutions per year. Those interested in submitting a resolution are encouraged to reach out to the resolution review committee or their WCC county chair for guidance in drafting a resolution.

Additional tips on preparing a resolution are available on the WCC and DNR’s spring hearings webpage.

At the close of the submission process, the resolutions will be reviewed by a committee of WCC delegates to ensure they meet the criteria for inclusion and will be prepared for the online input, which kicks off April 10, and will close April 13.
