In Episode 9 of District of Conservation, Gabriella gives a brief overview of her experience participating in TIME Magazine’s “Guns in America” cover: http://time.com/guns-in-america/

She also discusses the appointment of Aurelia Skipwith to be Acting Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Senate confirmation process that await her; new hunting license numbers showing a whopping 15.6M hunters across the U.S. bought licenses; President Trump signing the most comprehensive water infrastructure bill into law last week – especially to help with the EAA Reservoir Construction in Florida; and new updates to waterfowl and Canada goose possession limits in the Atlantic Flyway (Maryland and Virginia) set to be enacted during the 2019-2020 season.
