I am preparing to head to Washington D.C. to take part in the Land Trust Alliance Advocacy Days (April 9 - 10). This is an event I look forward to participating in annually that puts me in the middle of important efforts to advise Congress on critical land conservation issues. I will be meeting with quite a few of our New Jersey elected officials. You can be sure I'll be putting a word in for the importance of land conservation in New Jersey on your behalf!
I'd love to hear your opinion about any issues on your mind. Share your thoughts with me by responding to this email.

P.S. There is new conservation easement legislation on Capitol Hill. On January 18, 2019, the U.S. Senate introduced the bipartisan Charitable Conservation Easement Program Integrity Act . This crucial legislation addresses an urgent problem for our community and requires elected officials’ support.
