Join the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and the Izaak Walton League of America on Wednesday, June 6th for a farm conservation tour and Farm Bill policy forum.

We'll meet at the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque Iowa, and spend the morning touring conservation in action on area farms. After lunch at the Swiss Valley Nature Center, we will return to the Museum for a Farm Bill policy forum, where you can learn how the Farm Bill impacts our soil, air, water and budgets and share your thoughts on Farm Bill priorities. 

This event is free and open to the public, and food and transportation will be provided. However, an RSVP at http://farmbill.eventbrite.com is required to reserve your seat.
