Washington, D.C. – Partnership for Conservation (P4C) chairman and president Robert Ramsay issued a statement Wednesday announcing the organization will postpone a legislative fly-in previously scheduled for March 31 – April 1 as Congress works on solutions to the Covid-19 crisis.

“While our members were looking forward to meeting with members of Congress and their staffs in person later this month as part of Partnership for Conservation’s annual fly-in, we are committed to doing our part in this crisis and respecting the recommendations of public health officials about non-essential travel and public gatherings,” Ramsay said. “P4C will not miss a beat in our support for market-based conservation solutions while also being mindful of the pressing and unique challenges lawmakers and their staffs are addressing on behalf of the nation.”

“In order to avoid distracting  legislative offices from their crucial focus on the Covid-19 crisis, we will not be replacing our scheduled legislative fly-in with a mass video conference or other large-scale remote event,” Ramsay added. “P4C commends lawmakers for rightly focusing on solutions to the current Covid-19  challenge and looks forward to continuing our work highlighting the critical value and importance of every tool on the conservation toolkit and advancing solutions to strengthen the integrity of all conservation easements.”

As services are limited, the National Park Service continues to urge visitors to:

Check park websites for the most up to date information regarding access.

Pack out everything you bring into a park and always practice Leave No Trace principles.

Park only in designated areas. Follow park regulations.

If you encounter a crowded trail-head or overlook, you're not practicing safe social distancing. Go elsewhere.

If waving to your friend from six feet away, you're doing it right. If you're waving while standing next to a moose, you're not.
