Federal investment in public lands (parks, refuges, trails, rivers, recreation areas and national forests) drives a conservation, recreation and historic preservation sector of the economy that supports 9.4 million U.S. jobs. Whether manufacturing, retail or service related, most of these jobs are resource or tourism based and cannot be exported. The combination of conservation, outdoor recreation and historic preservation is responsible for more than $1 trillion in economic activity and more than $107 billion in federal, state and local tax revenues. Congress has an opportunity not only to continue the strong tradition of conservation in our country but also to grow our way back to fiscal health through the economic benefits provided by outdoor sports and recreation. ----- Sign up to become a TRCP partner — it's free: http://bit.ly/yk52YI I urge anyone who loves MeatEater--or, for that matter, anyone who loves hunting and fishing and eating wild game--to hurry over and check out the first of our Conservation Field Notes videos. We are making these videos in conjunction with the non-profit Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, which received vital sponsorship backing from Bass Pro Shops. The reason that the MeatEater team chose to work with TRCP is summed up nicely by that organization's rallying cry: Guaranteeing You a Place to Hunt and Fish. We love them for it, and because they wage a nonstop battle for wild lands conservation, day-in and day-out. What's more, they're not afraid to take unpopular stances when they know it's the right thing to do for hunters and anglers. The aim of these Conservation Field Notes is simple: to alert you about specific issues that are imminent threats to our hunting and fishing lands, and to tell you how to join in the battle. So please, get your little butts over to http://www.trcp.org/community/conservation-field-notes. You owe it to yourself and to your kids. --Steven Rinella

The temporary, two-year override levy will preserve and protect water quality, wildlife and native plant habitat, and open space for recreation in the city’s foothills and along the Boise River corridor. Efforts to pass this levy were community wide and built upon a strong conservation and open space legacy in the City of Boise. Conservation Voters for Idaho lead the Boise for Clean Water and Open Space campaign, the effort to educate voters on the levy and generate support to pass it. Tune in and learn the answers to these questions: * What are key ways to build initial support? * What are examples of successfully engaging the community to build support? * What are tips and suggestions for passing a levy or bond in your community?
