For 15 years, the TRCP has been bringing together key voices, policy experts, and conservation leaders at a Western Media Summit to discuss the most pressing conservation issues of the day.

August 27, 2017* to August 30, 2017
Minneapolis, Minn.
*Join us early for an optional trip to the Boundary Waters!

This year, the Western Media Summit goes Midwest to the diverse sportsmen’s paradise of Minnesota, where we’ll discuss the opportunities and challenges for fish and wildlife habitat in the 2018 Farm Bill debate.

With approximately 70 percent of the country (and 75 percent of Minnesota) made up of private land, the $5 billion in conservation funding guided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture each year supports habitat, clean water, and outdoor recreation opportunities that help rural America thrive.

The Farm Bill is the single largest legislative vehicle for conservation, and the hunting and fishing community is more unified and prepared than ever to make sure agriculture and private lands conservation policy works for fish, wildlife, sportsmen, and the outdoor recreation economy.
