Never underestimate the power of policy, whether it be –
• Wildlife
• Fisheries
• Tax

• Land
Joint venturing doesn’t have to be costly in time or money.

Backyards are becoming more plentiful than back fortys – think urban wildlife.

Appeal to multiple values when selling wildlife and fisheries conservation (father, son, mother, daughter).

The extension demonstration method is still a very effective communication technique.

Third party testimony is more effective than personal advocacy.

Build consensus: all of us are smarter than any of us.

Enjoy your extension career. It is one of the very best in the natural resources field.
