As part of the Illinois DNR's outreach to involve as many as possible in the 2014 Conservation Congress discussion, there will be a series of five webcasts and roundtable discussions open to the public.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR)
is gearing up for Conservation Congress 2014: Charting a Course to Protect & Preserve Our Natural Resources with a series of pre-event activities  designed to inform and engage the public on key issues facing the State of Illinois.  Last year, the agency began its preparation for Conservation Congress by hosting regional meetings throughout Illinois, and in the new year the IDNR is expanding its outreach efforts to ensure every voice is heard in the lead-up to the April statewide event.

The IDNR will also host a series of live, interactive
webcasts – Thursdays with IDNR – focused on topics that were discussed at last year’s regional meetings. After reviewing feedback from the public who attended the meetings, the agency is seeking new ways to enhance its communications efforts to provide Illinois residents a greater window into the work IDNR is performing. The live webcasts will feature IDNR staff, and will be held every Thursday from January 23 to February 20 at noon to 1:00 p.m. Viewers can access the live webcasts from

This is the third of these live webcasts, focused on "Outdoor Recreation".

In addition to the live webcasts, there will be an online survey to bring in public opinions, posted on the IDNR website during the week of January 13, 2014.
