Are there local environmental issues that concern you? Could your local official do something to help? Want to know what you can do to be a part of the solution? Learn how to effectively raise your voice for local conservation by sending letters and giving testimony to decision-makers. Join the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy for an evening at Rust Sanctuary, where Audubon Naturalist Society’s experts will present a fun and empowering introduction to environmental advocacy. All are welcome.

These skills can apply to any environmental issue--learn how you can raise your voice for local conservation.

We will cover the following topics through a combination of lecture, hands-on exercises, and role-playing with group feedback:

The importance of protecting our environment and watersheds through land-use decision making How to analyze an environmental issue and write a convincing argument Get ready for public speaking: how to turn your analysis into compelling (and brief!) oral testimony to decision-makers

And, you'll get your own copy of Audubon Naturalist Society's new Advocacy & Stewardship Handbook!

Leaders: Eliza Cava (ANS Director of Conservation) and Cheri Conca (Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy Conservation Advocacy Chair)
