Short Description of Activity

Public Meeting of grassroots conservation volunteers featuring speakers Pat Flowers, MT Legislative Representative, and Chris Servheen, E.D. of Montana Wildlife Federation and former grizzly bear expert

Reflection/Evaluation

The meeting was valuable in many ways including establishing that people traveling to the state capitol in Helena MT to advocate in person before the state legislature and its committees was the most effective way of influencing policy at the state government level.
