Few issues are more important than the over-arching capacity to fund conservation now and into the future. In this episode we explore a key piece of funding legislation recently introduced to the Oregon State legislature, HB 2829, The Oregon Conservation and Recreation Fund. It's successful passage requires immediate support from Oregonians.

We explore the bill and surrounding issue with Representative Ken Helm, policy experts Mark Labhart and Jim Owens, and former ODFW biologist Claire Puchy. We discuss the important history leading up to this far-reaching issue, what the bill does, and how you can support its passage in the coming DAYS and WEEKS.
