2014 - Statewide Victory

Protecting County Conservationists

County Conservationists are the local boots on the ground working to reduce polluted runoff and providing critical testing and monitoring that keep our land and water clean. Gov. Walker’s proposed budget would have cut the number of County Conservation staff, limited their ability to support local conservation efforts, and reduced the state’s ability to monitor soil and water pollution. Your letters – over 11,000 – helped restore $675,000 to this vital program.
