The Iowa Wildlife Federation is hosting a “Conservation on Tap” gathering Wednesday night at Tin Roost, 840 W. Penn St. in North Liberty, to bring together local conservationists for beer, appetizers and discussion.
The non-profit collaborates with stakeholders like anglers, hunters and outdoors enthusiasts to conserve wildlife on a local level. At the state level, they raise awareness at events and online, support research and restoration efforts and endorse pro-conservation legislature.
Co-Director Tammy Mildenstein said the board hopes Conservation on Tap will help the federation expand its reach with new members, ideas and collaborations. All sorts of people can play a role in conservation, from scientists to policy makers to recreational nature lovers.
A $10 ticket includes appetizers and the first round of beer. For $40, attendants get a year of Iowa Wildlife Federation membership, discounted $5. Tickets must be purchased in advance at iawildlife.org.
