Nevada Wildlife Federation

-NOTICE-

The Nevada Wildlife Federation and the National Wildlife Federation are excited to Present:

The 2018 Nevada Sporting Community and Conservation Round Table (LAS VEGAS)

\DATE:   Thursday,  August 9th

TIME:    5:30 pm

PLACE:  Arizona Charlies, 740 S. Decatur Blvd., Las Vegas NV 89107

Nevada is the envy of sportsmen from all over the country and is truly a sporting paradise. With nearly 60 million acres of public land, abundant world class big game and upland game populations along with world class fisheries, outdoor recreation like hunting, fishing and camping are what make Nevada so unique and special.

Come and join us for an evening of lively discussion about some of the most relevant and important issues facing the sporting and wildlife conservation community in Nevada.

Topics will include 

  • Military land withdrawals from the Desert National Wildlife Refuge along with military land withdrawals from important big horn sheep habitat in northern Nevada near the Fallon Naval Air Station. We will be discussing how the sporting and conservation community can work together to advocate for and protect our wildlife resources.
  • Important legislation regarding habitat protection for sage grouse, mule deer and pronghorn.
  • Wildfire and invasive – What can we do to improve wildfire fighting resources in Nevada?
  • Wildlife conservation funding – What can sportsmen do? 

This forum will be both informative as well as a call to action. Sportsmen need to be engaged and to know about threats to our public lands, wildlife and wildlife habitat. We need to think about what we can do as a community to help insure that our sporting heritage is passed on to future generations and that our public lands and wildlife remain abundant and accessible to all of us. 

We need you, members of the sporting public to attend. An informed sportsmen’s community is a powerful sportsmen’s community. This forum brings together members of different sporting groups for some fun socializing, and to share ideas and concerns and to develop strategies to be more effective as a community in the political process. 

What we take for granted today could be gone tomorrow if sportsmen are not diligent about staying informed and being involved in the political decision making process. 

Please put it on your calendar and plan to attend.

If you have additional questions please contact Eric Petlock at epetlock@gmail.com

Nevada Wildlife Federation, Inc. (NvWF) officers and workers are all volunteers and are not paid for their service to the organization or for the time spent on projects. Funds raised by the NvWF are used to purchase materials for field projects, for contributions to government agencies such as the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), and for specific purposes such as wildlife research and habitat improvements. The NvWF also makes donations to, or pools resources with, other non-profit organizations for state approved wildlife management projects in Nevada. A quarterly newsletter and other normal operating costs make up the remainder of the organization’s expenses.
