     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. The 2023 deadline for citizens to submit resolutions for changes they would like to see in the future has passed, but please see WCC Resolution Process and Resolution Submittal FAQ for more information on the resolutions and the process.

     This year’s online questionnaire will be open from April 10 at noon through April 13 at noon via the Wisconsin Conservation Congress Spring Hearing webpage. You can preview this year's questions by clicking on the links below.

     NEW THIS YEAR: The week prior to the annual WCC/DNR Spring Hearings, 4/3/23-4/6/23, Open Houses will be held in each county to allow the public to ask questions and learn about resource management in their neck of the woods. See WCC/ DNR Spring Hearing Open Houses for the date and meeting location for each county.

     DNR staff and WCC delegates will be on hand at these open houses to discuss local issues of importance, answer questions from the public and open a dialogue between the public, the DNR and the WCC about areas of interest and concern.

     In addition, the WCC will hold elections for their delegates at each of these open houses. Two of the five WCC seats will be up for election in each county. For those who would like to become more involved for wildlife in Wisconsin -- did you realize that ANYONE can run for election as a Wisconsin Conservation Congress Delegate? You can read more about the Wisconsin Conservation Congress Delegate Election Process here.
