In Episode 14 of District of Conservation, Gabriella touches on Bush 41’s legacy with respect to conservation, environmental issues, and fishing.

She also discusses why the 8-0 ruling in Weyerhaueser vs. U.S.F.W.S is a win for private property rights and conservation.

She also touches upon four critical pieces of legislation awaiting passage in Congress — especially the Senate. They include the Modern Fish Act, Manage Our Wolves Act, renewing the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and Modernizing Pittman Robertson-Act.
