Dear CT Birding Community,
The Friends of the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge invite you to attend our April 5th, 2014 Advocacy 101 Workshop hosted by Sandy Breslin, Director of Governmental Affairs, for Audubon Connecticut.
The April 5th workshop will focus on bills that the US House of Representatives and Senate will be considering during the second half of the legislative session that have the potential to impact the Stewart B. McKinney Refuge or support research, wildlife conservation, water quality improvement and land protection within CT. Strategies for reaching federal lawmakers will be discussed. The workshop takes place from 1-3pm in Room 110 of Yale University's Environmental Science Center (ESC), located at 21 Sachem St, New Haven. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided. Participants are welcome to take part in a networking bag lunch from 12-1pm.
For more information or to rsvp, contact Corrie Folsom-O'Keefe at cfolsom-okeefe at audubon.org or 203-264-5098 ext. 310.
