Work Boots on the Ground Program
For more than two centuries, American workers and sportsmen-conservationists often traveled and toiled along parallel tracks as they worked to improve their lives, the lives of their fellow citizens and the state of the nation. At times, these parallel tracks intersected. That’s no surprise given their shared interests in the well-being of America’s fish, wildlife and the lands and waters that support us all as well as the fact that a high percentage of working people are avid hunters and anglers who love to be outdoors when they’re not at work.
Our country’s greatest challenges have always brought forth the best examples of the American spirit with citizens joining together for the greater good. In today’s difficult economic situation, the time has come for the parallel tracks of union members and sportsmen to once again align. Now is the time for every working person, but especially union members who understand the power of working together, to volunteer their energy and skills to help put this country back on track.
Recognizing this need, the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance launched Work Boots on the Ground, a conservation program that brings together union members willing to volunteer their time and expertise to conservation projects that improve and enhance public access, wildlife habitat and outdoor experiences for communities across America. USA’s Work Boots on the Ground program works closely with federal, state and local agencies and other conservation groups to provide manpower needed to complete critical projects that may otherwise go undone.
