Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership

Their goal is simple, they want to guarantee all Americans quality places to hunt and fish. They do this by help create federal policy and funding solutions by uniting our partners and amplifying the voices of American sportsmen and women in service of Theodore Roosevelt’s conservation legacy.

They fight for three main things… protected habitats and clean water, sportsmen’s access, and the outdoor recreation economy.

In 1912, Roosevelt said, “There can be no greater issue than that of conservation in this country.” While in the political arena, he succeeded in making conservation a top-tier national issue. T.R. had the foresight to address these issues still so significant to sportsmen today, understanding that if we want to safeguard critical habitat, productive hunting grounds, and favorite fishing holes for future generations, we must plan carefully today.

They offer numerous ways for you to get involved and learn more, which you can discover by connecting with them online.

Huge congrats to them on their selection, and we hope they keep up the great work!
