Groups Seek Broad Organizational and Business Support for Farm Bill Conservation Programs

Several conservation groups (including American Farmland Trust, American Forest Foundation, Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, Land Trust Alliance, National Association of Conservation Districts, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, The Nature Conservancy and Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership) have taken the lead in drafting a Farm Bill conservation program support letter that will be sent to U.S. House and Senate Agriculture Committee leadership. It is available on-line to review and (for organizations and businesses interested in signing) for internet sign-on at this link.  The deadline for signatures is Friday, February 24. 

Questions on the letter and related issues should be emailed to K. Diane Hoskins,, Federal Legislative Campaigns, at The Nature Conservancy.
