The Conservation Coalition of Oklahoma provides a unified voice for common-sense conservation policy, encourages Oklahoma’s youth to connect with nature and learn about wildlife and habitats and creates opportunities for citizens and lawmakers to become more aware of conservation issues that are critically important to our state’s future.
CCO appreciates the contributions of agriculture to our state; importantly, we are not anti-agriculture. Rather, we’re deeply concerned with the potential consequences of this particular state question. Accordingly, our organization seeks to educate Oklahoma voters about SQ777 so that voters may make an educated decision on Election Day.

Our mission is to encourage youth to hunt and fish, hike and canoe and experience nature, which helps them grow and keep them healthy.
