PRFA Exhibit on DEC Threats to Hunting and Hunting Camps at NEACA Arms Collector’s Show at Saratoga City Center

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has been developing policies that support restoration of a substantial population of wolves in New York and the Northeast. The DEC is disputing with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service because the FWS is not keen on the wolf classification that DEC advocates, which would force the federal agency to take on the burden of protection of wolves in New York State.

The PRFA display will have available copies of the official DEC letter disputing the FWS wolf classification, as well as a recent national news article where the DEC advocates restoration of a population of wolves in New York and the Northeast. In addition, there will be copies of PRFA’s New York Property Rights Clearinghouse explaining the significance of DEC’s new “connectivity” plan for its forests to allow predator movement.

Support the right to bear arms and enjoy the company of fellow patriots. Visit PRFA’s popular exhibit on the future of hunting and hunting camps on forest lands.

For more information about the NEACA shows, which open at 9:00 a.m. on both Friday and Saturday, and joining NEACA (one year membership allows free admission) see www.NEACA.com or telephone (518) 664-9743.

PRFA Exhibit on Threats Posed by DEC Policies to Hunting and Hunting Camps at NEACA Arms Collector’s Show, Saratoga City Center

This exhibit added information about the DEC’s stepped up movement toward wolf restoration in New York and the Northeast to the popular PRFA exhibit about the DEC threat to the hunting clubs on former Finch Pruyn Land and the DEC’s intensifying policy of closing hunting access to the Forest Preserve. Thousands of people concerned with the right to bear arms packed the NEACA on this weekend. The PRFA exhibit was crowded with at least twice as many inquirers as usual.

The PRFA exhibits at the NEACA's Arms Collectors' Shows are supported by a generous grant for grassroots educational outreach from Great Circle Foundation, which is located in East Northport, New York.

“Common Ground in the Adirondacks” - Speech by Carol W. LaGrasse, President, Property Rights Foundation of America, Inc., Hosted by the League of Blue Line Voters, Town Hall, Chestertown, N.Y.

Drawing on first hand observations, experience, and research beginning in 1973, Carol LaGrasse refutes the popular Adirondack strategy of seeking common ground with environmental groups, and instead urges that the Adirondack community leadership base their strategy of working in a united front on their inherent common ground with organizations ranging from local government officials to sportsmen to medical institutions, and other groups whose corporate purposes are consistent with the wellbeing of the local people and their communities.
