What am I required to wear?
No dress code required. Dress casual. Dress formal. Whatever makes you most comfortable. The most important thing is to come and make your voice heard.
Do I need to be an expert on the issues?
No, you only need to care about the protection and enhancement of America’s private forestland. FLA will brief all participants on the important issues during breakfast. You will be grouped with members of your community and led by a group leader to visit members of Congress from your state and region.
Can I bring my children so they can see the political process first hand?
Absolutely! Your children are the next generation of American private forest landowners.
