From its inception, the League and its members have been advocates for conserving, protecting and enjoying our country’s incredible array of natural resources. Our active engagement coupled with a practical approach to problem solving has made a difference from town halls to the halls of Congress for 90 years. The Advocacy section of this Web site provides the tools, information, and other resources you need to affect public policy — from the nation's capital to your home town.
