Conservation Courier - 2017 Legislative Update The wins and the losses: HERE
Geiger Counter Fishing - Conservation Alert Radioactive waste dumped into sewage drain and then the White river by University of Arkansas planned. While the first of 80,000 gallon load is below maximum "allowed" levels we take issue with this and the very concept. In most areas of the world "nuclear waste" and "clean river" do not usually go together. We've sent a letter of concern opposing this and Ed Brocksmith of STIR is attending the city council meeting.. We'll keep you posted.
Check the latest effort in the long-running battle against pollution of our Illinois River. Thanks to our Pat Daly for his work with the Conservation Coalition. See : LETTER
TU Chapter 420 Members & TU National Help Save 3 million acres of Public Lands
HR 621 withdrawn 2/1/17 Amongst all of the attacks we're seeing on public lands, it looks like the 81 million outdoorsmen and women, including TU members, managed to soundly defeat HR 621, the selloff of public recreation land. Rep Chaffetz, Utah announced late last night that he is pulling his HR 621 to sell off 3.3 million acres of important public lands, in direct response to the huge citizen outcry against the bill. Congratulations to TU actions and Montana and New Mexico for two fantastic public lands rallies this week that helped force this decisive victory for the outdoors. Keep making your voices heard.
