I’m a conservation voter because protection, preservation, and enhancement of our environment does not just happen. It takes the efforts of citizen advocates and voters. Working together to influence public conservation policy and practice is essential for securing clean and healthy air, water, and land. Only if we also work to assure clean government will conservation succeed.
