PLC to Hold Legislative Conference Virtually Next Month


The Public Lands Council Tuesday announced their 2021 Legislative Conference is being held virtually March 23-25, 2021. PLC volunteer leaders, staff, and affiliates will host legislative strategy sessions and workshops on how to successfully advocate the livestock industry in our nation’s capital. Attendees will hear from Members of Congress, policy experts, scientists, and other industry professionals who are dedicated to Western lands, waters, and perspectives.

This also gives public lands ranchers the opportunity to catch up, after a busy start to the year. PLC President Niels Hansen says, “Even though we are meeting virtually this year, all of these things are still a focus of our Legislative Conference.” Panel discussions will focus on how grazing facilitates opportunities for other multiple uses, how permittees help protect open spaces from conversion, reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire, and promote biodiversity. Registration for the event is free and is available on the Public Lands Council website,
