State & Tribal Wildlife Grants Fly-In

The Association (AFWA) will be hosting its annual Fly-in to support the State and Tribal Wildlife Grants (STWG) program on March 24-25 in Washington DC. The Fly-in will provide state agencies and their partners an opportunity to meet with members of Congress and their staff to communicate the importance and accomplishments of the STWG program. States with members on the House and Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee are especially encouraged to attend. We will also use the Fly-in to inform members and their staff about the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act. 

When: Tuesday, March 24- Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Where: Washington D.C.

Please email Mark Humpert at MHumpert@fishwildlife.org if you are able to attend.
