Join the National Wildlife Federation and NH Audubon for a special training session and learn how to raise questions that not only get the candidates talking about environmental issues but effectively express your concerns to them.
We will discuss how to engage with people and candidates, how to raise environmental and wildlife issues, and how to talk to the media.
If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by email with your name and how many people you will bring with you!
