    While the majority of Americans cherish our national public lands,  sporting and outdoor organizations note that a small  group of state and federal lawmakers and their allies are trying to dismantle the network of public lands that is a cornerstone of our economy and national identity. 

    In response, forty sportsmen’s and outdoor organizations from across the country today released a letter asking all the presidential candidates to publicly state their support for our national public lands – the places we hunt, fish and recreate and that sustain our fish and wildlife populations.

    The following  organizations, representing millions of hunters, anglers, wildlife watchers and other outdoors enthusiasts, have asked candidates to publicly commit to “keeping public lands in public hands:  

    Archery Trade Association · Arizona Wildlife Federation · Arkansas Wildlife Federation Association of Northwest Steelheaders · Backcountry Hunters and Anglers · Bear Trust International · Campfire Club of America · Colorado Wildlife Federation · Conservation Federation of Missouri · Conservation Force · Conservation Northwest · Dallas Safari Club Houston · Safari Club · Idaho Wildlife Federation · Iowa Wildlife Federation · Kansas Wildlife Federation · Louisiana Wildlife Federation · Masters of Foxhounds Association · Mississippi Wildlife Federation · National Trappers Association · National Wild Turkey Federation · National Wildlife Federation · Nevada Wildlife Federation · New Mexico Wildlife Federation · North American Grouse Partnership · North Carolina Wildlife Federation · North Dakota Wildlife Federation · Orion the Hunter’s Institute · Public Lands Foundation · Quality Deer Management Association · Shikar Safari Club International · Sportsmen’s Alliance · South Dakota Wildlife Federation · Tennessee Wildlife Federation · Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership · Tread Lightly! · Trout Unlimited · Whitetails Unlimited · Wildlife Management Institute · Wyoming Wildlife Federation

    "Ellen McNulty’s tireless efforts at the Arkansas Wildlife Federation have benefited the state of Arkansas, its waters and its wildlife,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Ellen’s expertise in water policy and farming made her an indispensable voice of reason—whether she is fighting for the protection of the Buffalo National River or the Clean Water Rule. Time and time again, Ellen McNulty has shown that her grace and passion can result in amazing accomplishments.”

    In receiving her award Ellen said:  "I felt very honored but also humbled to receive the award in front of many of the people that I admire the most.

    "The governor needs to act immediately to stop the hog CAFO operation until a well can be dug to test the substance in the plume underneath the ponds. If it is found to contain hog waste, the operation should be shut down and a clean up plan developed and implemented to lessen the damage as much as possible to the groundwater, ecosystem, and national river."
