Local governments are now preparing budgets and holding public hearings on their proposed 2018 budgets. Conservation measures are in tough competition with many other needs. Auduboners can speak up for parks, natural resources and more environmentally-sensitive policies and practices. Check out your local government’s website for details.
Fairfax County, for example, is having public hearings on these dates at the Fairfax County Government Center: April 4, 4 p.m.; April 5, 1 p.m.; and April 6, 1 p.m.
