A Wisconsin wolf      The Wisconsin Conservation Congress (WCC) and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will once again offer their annual opportunity for the public to provide input on a variety of natural resource-related questions with in-person meetings in each county on April 8, 2024, at 6 p.m. and the annualonline survey starting at noon April 10 to noon on April 13, 2024. Elections for WCC delegates will take place during the in-person WCC/DNR Spring Hearings held in each county on April 8, 2024. More information will be forthcoming as plans for these events are finalized.

     This is the annual opportunity for EVERYONE in Wisconsin to weigh in and voice opinions on WI wildlife and outdoor issues by responding to natural resource-related questions and proposed rule changes. In addition, the public will have the opportunity to bring new conservation issues of statewide significance to the attention of the Conservation Congress through the citizen resolution process. Citizen resolutions can be submitted through Feb. 26, 2024.

     Resolutions must meet the following criteria:  The concern must be of statewide impact;  the concern must be practical, achievable and reasonable; and  the concern must be within the mission and vision of the Wisconsin Conservation Congress.

     Resolutions will be accepted until Feb. 26, 2024. At the close of the submission process, the resolutions will be reviewed by a committee of WCC delegates to ensure they meet the criteria for inclusion and will be prepared for the online input.
