Wisconsin DNR Invites You to To Participate in Conservation Congress Resolution Process

Posted on 1-25-2024

The Wisconsin Conservation Congress (WCC*) is inviting 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.

Each year residents have an opportunity to submit ideas as resolutions to the WCC. Wisconsinites can submit proposed resolutions via the online process now through Feb. 26, 2024. 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 Wisconsin Conservation Congress.

An individual citizen 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. Tips on preparing a resolution are available on the WCC and DNR’s Spring Hearings webpage.

Resolutions will be accepted until February 26th, 2024. 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 on Wednesday, April 10th, and will close on Saturday, April 13th, 2024.
