Recommendations from Chair of the Directorate Peter Youngbaer

The NSS' letter to Secretaries Zinke and Perdue will have more impact if the Secretaries also hear from Senators and Representatives that they would like to see them address the WNS cave closure policies.  If you, as NSS members, contact your Senators and Representatives and ask them to contact the Secretaries and support the NSS' letter, that will help greatly.  Cabinet officials prioritize responses to those politicians currently in office, so your asking your congressional delegation to support the NSS' letter will make this effort stronger.  Thank you.

On April 1, the notice will go out to NSS members of the availability of the April Conservation Issue on line, and with it the letter and sidebar in the issue.  We are coordinating with our social media folks, as well, so all the variations hit the public at the same time.

So, please post on April 1.  An appropriate headline might be:  NSS calls on U.S. Government to Change Cave Closure Policies on WNS, but feel free to tweak as you see fit.   Let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you.
