This year’s Conservation Congress will start with a series of regional meetings, where participants will begin to “unpack” five broad topics for improving the mission and services provided by the IDNR to its constituents. The topics are:
Sustainable Resource Development and Extraction – mines and minerals, water resources, forestry, etc.
Sustainable Resource Harvest – outdoor recreation – wildlife and fish conservation, hunting, fishing, etc.
Sustainable Provision of Outdoor Recreation – recreational public access, state parks, etc.
Sustainable Resource Protection – regulation, law enforcement, etc.
Building Bridges – developing new constituencies, professional development, improving and growing partnerships
