New Jersey Outdoor Alliance Update for May 2012

TRENTON, NJ –-( The volunteers of the NJOA make a concerted effort to keep our members and the public apprised of the legislation being advanced or supported by the NJOA (CF).

CF council members and NJOA personnel work ceaselessly to get bills passed including: fixed gear off of the reefs, Hooked on Fishing Not On Drugs, hunting mentorship, forest stewardship, clean water, and more.

We also work with state agencies on regulations that improve our environment or provide better access to natural resources.

Our charity focuses on land and water habitat improvement and we even have a program currently offered in 14 schools that gives kids an opportunity to witness the miracles of nature up close in the classroom.

We spend much of our time educating the public and policymakers about the importance of “conservation” to natural resource health. I hope each of you realizes the sacrifices being made on behalf of conservationists by the volunteers of the NJOA organizations.

We are optimistic that there will be some positive news in the near future on having traps removed from the reefs and Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs programs implemented throughout the state. We are also optimistic about other natural resource advancements in the not-to-distant future.

In the interim, those interested in gaining a better understanding of the workings of our forests and the purpose behind the Forest Stewardship Bill may appreciate the following op-ed published in the Times of Trenton.

On behalf of all of us affiliated with the NJOA organizations thank you for your support.

The op-ed is called “N.J. Forest Stewardship Bill is a giant leap for conservation” and is published by the Times of Trenton. It can be read at the link that follows:

Sr. Chairman,
New Jersey Outdoor Alliance: “We’ve got your back!”
