The MALT membership legislative Land Trust Day in the Capitol is coming up on April 11, and detailed information about the day’s agenda will be finalized soon. The event will kick off at 10:00 AM with a brief welcome and pep talk by State Senator Terry Gauthier (R-Helena), sponsor of SB 24, a bill that would expand trails and parks funding. The bill has passed the Senate and will be heard in the House Fish, Wildlife & Parks Committee on March 28. Thanks to Prickly Pear Land Trust, which has kindly offered to take a lead on serving lunch in the Capitol rotunda at noon on April 11. Please consider making the trip to Helena on April 11 for the day’s festivities. Land Trust Day in the Capitol presents a great opportunity to discuss the importance of private land conservation to a key audience of policy makers. More details coming soon.
