It’s Election Season

Tell Candidates the Ice Age National Scenic Trail is Important

November 8 is a big election day. Wisconsin residents will be choosing Federal and State representatives. Since 31 State legislators are retiring, many of those elected in November will be brand new to their roles.

Therefore, it’s now especially important to tell the candidates about the Ice Age National Scenic Trail (and Knowles-Nelson Stewardship funding).

Candidates need to understand the Trail is important to their constituents and to the state of Wisconsin. The Trail is important to you, so it should be important to them.

Your help is needed!

As an Ice Age Trail Alliance supporter, you can educate candidates about the Trail, the work of the Alliance, and issues affecting the Trail. Urge them to support the Trail and funding of natural resources, including the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program.

Please reach out to candidates in your area (or their representatives).

Call their office, send an email, or write a letter. You may even be able to submit comments or questions to candidate websites. If possible, attend meet and greet events with candidates. Or, invite them to your Chapter’s events.
