R3 Summit

I need to spread the word on this:

Registration open for virtual Hunting, Fishing R3 Summit

LINCOLN, Neb. — The 2020 Hunting and Fishing R3 Summit is going virtual this year, streaming live over Zoom from 10 a.m. to noon CST Aug. 5.

Register at OutdoorNebraska.org/r3summit on or before Aug. 2 to receive the virtual meeting Zoom link via email. Those unable to attend will be able to watch a recording of the summit online at a later date.

“We hope this adjustment will allow more people and organizations to tune in live,” said Jeff Rawlinson, outdoor education manager with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. “This year’s agenda represents an exciting discussion of opportunities for moving hunter and angler recruitment, retention and reactivation forward in Nebraska, with the result of more people supporting our communities and enjoying quality outdoor recreation across Nebraska.”

Presentations will focus on building new audiences of committed outdoor recreationists, as well as on growing mentorship.

Join the Nebraska Hunting and Fishing R3 Partners group on Facebook for meeting updates and future collaboration opportunities.

Partners for the virtual event include the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, Quail Forever, the Big Game Conservation Association, and the National Wild Turkey Federation.

What is “R3”?  Recruit, reactivate and retain.  It refers to our efforts to recruit, reactivate and retain anglers, shooters and hunters.  It is something I hope every one of us is doing.  Someone taught you, someone got you hooked, and we need to pass it on.

We had our first R3 summit last summer to talk about partnerships, programs and strategies for our efforts here in Nebraska.  Our plan was to keep that momentum going by having another summit this summer.  Then the coronavirus came around.  So, like many other meetings these days, we are doing it virtually.

Sign up!  See you then!
