Sportsmen and Women from Across U.S. Gather on Capitol Hill to Talk Climate

Outdoor Writers Association of American Conference

Submitted by Josh Nelson

CBS has a great overview of the Outdoor Writers Association of America meeting that took place in Roanoke, VA last week. Highlights:

The conversation about hunters and greens working together, last year bubbling below the surface, was front and center this year. Global warming is now an accepted premise — a part of landscape in which other conversations about conservation take place.
Ducks Unlimited has been working with National Wildlife Federation to inform its members about the potential effects of climate change.

Climate change is driving species to higher latitudes and elevations. National wildlife refuges, lands set aside as habitat based on where critters used to live, aren’t so mobile.

Thanks for covering this CBS!
