TALK TO Federal environmental officials from:

Hear success stories from this region, and give Federal officials your ideas on open space recreation, conservation, biodiversity, and ways to link people (especially youth and children) from urban, suburban and rural settings with nature and the outdoors. What's working, what tools and resources would increase success, what are the barriers and obstacles, and what role can the federal government play?
