Versatile Hunter

Champaign, IL Farm Bill Forum

Sun, January 28, 2018

If you believe yourself a hunter, conservationist, and/or outdoors person I would suggest everyone make a move to let your officials know how important the farm bill conservation programs are to us and educate yourself.


Register TODAY for Upcoming Farm Bill Forum—

Jan. 31, I-Hotel, Champaign, IL

The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP), in cooperation with the Illinois Conservation Foundation (ICF), has scheduled a public forum entitled ‘Illinois Sportsmen’s Guide to the 2018 Farm Bill.’ The purpose of the forums is to help sportsmen, private landowners, and fellow conservationists learn about federal Farm Bill conservation programs that are important to the future of fish and wildlife habitat, water quality, and soil health in Illinois.

According to an analysis by the TRCP, if Congress fails to re-authorize these important Farm Bill conservation provisions in 2018, Illinois stands to lose up to 900,000 acres of wildlife habitat enrolled in programs like the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), and more than 16,000 acres of hunting and fishing access funded under the Farm Bill through the Illinois Recreational Access Program (IRAP).  Farm Bill programs also affect downstream water quality in Illinois rivers, lakes and streams.

“The 2018 Farm Bill will have a big impact on Illinois,” said Eric Schenck, executive director of the Illinois Conservation Foundation.  “This forum is a chance for conservation interests to learn what is at stake and how to make their voices heard in Washington, D.C.”

The following Sportsmen Farm Bill forums are open to the public:

Wednesday, January 31, 4:30 – 5:30 pm, I-Hotel, 1900 South First Street, Champaign, IL
