Bringing hunters and anglers together and building an effective and informed advocacy voice is the mission for the Camo at the Capitol program. The program includes advocacy training and legislative action days at the Wyoming State Capitol, all aimed at cultivating a strong conservation voice for sportsmen and women, culminating in lasting policy changes that benefit wildlife and our sporting heritage.

 

RSVP For Camo at the Capitol on Feburary 2, 2023!

Camo at the Capitol is part of our Hunter and Angler Advocacy program and provides an opportunity for hunters, anglers, and other conservationists to exercise their public voice. Attendees will learn the ins and out’s of the legislative process, including bill creation, tracking, and ultimately its passing (or not passing) into law. Those who attend will not only learn the skill necessary for communicating with lawmakers but will also have the opportunity to speak directly with elected officials as they lobby for specific bills affecting the hunting and angling community.
