Is Legacy Amendment money being spent as voters expected?
A broad coalition of hunting, fishing and conservation groups will host a public forum Thursday in St. Paul to update Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment projects and explore current challenges.
The “Stakeholders Forum” will include panel discussions by legislators, conservation leaders and Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council members. For the first time, it also will examine clean water and parks and trails projects.
The event is 1-5 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. It is free and open to the public, but space is limited. To RSVP, send an e-mail to Noreen Tyler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finding long-term funding for the state’s fledgling walk-in access hunting program will be among the topics at the Department of Natural Resources’ annual “Roundtable’’ meetings this weekend in St. Paul.
About 300 citizens, conservation leaders, legislators and DNR employees will gather for the meetings Friday and Saturday to discuss fish, wildlife and ecological and water resources, including invasive species.
It’s the 22nd year of the meetings, designed for the DNR to inform and get feedback from “stakeholders’’ who are invited to the sessions. For the first time, the meetings will take place in St. Paul, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Gov. Mark Dayton will give a welcome speech.
