Wisconsin Conservation Congress


The Wisconsin Conservation Congress and the DNR are partnering to expand the Youth Conservation Congress. The Conservation Congress advises the DNR on conservation issues. The Youth Conservation Congress is designed by the Conservation Congress to provide young people with an experience like the advisory role of the adult Congress, says Kari Lee- Zimmerman, a liason with the DNR.

"....to get youth involved in both physical aspects of Conservation and also engage them also in the civics of conservation, the rule making process and what all goes into management...."


Wisconsin anglers could use motor-boats to troll for fish statewide, under a proposal endorsed at the annual conservation hearings. The D-N-R announced the results this week of votes taken at all of the Conservation Congress proceedings on Monday night in each of the 72 counties. At least some trolling on all lakes statewide was endorsed by 62-percent of the nearly 59-hundred sporting enthusiasts who voted on the question. It's been a hot topic in the popular fishing areas of northern Wisconsin.
