Natural Resources Board listening sessions set on plans for hunting and trapping in state parks

Our duty as Mountain Bike Advocates in Wisconsin doesn't stop at the end of a hard day of trail building and it defiantly doesn't stop at the end of the riding season. Our duties and responsibilities are on going.
  Earlier this year the Wisconsin State legislature passed Act 168 ( the Sporting Heritage Bill) which expands hunting and trapping in state parks (including state trails). I am asking our club members to attend the listening sessions to review the proposed implementation plans for this bill and provide feedback on the draft proposals to Natural Resource Board members. By providing our perspectives, we can help shape the final proposals that will to go to the Natural Resource Board for final approval in December.
