The Kansas Wildlife Federation (KWF) is looking for a few good people, possibly even people that you know! KWF needs nominees for its Conservation Achievement Program (CAP) awards, given each year to persons or groups who are actively involved in wildlife management programs to conserve the environment and promote environmental education and outreach. Any conservation-minded citizen may nominate someone who has done such habitat or information based work.
Dedicated groups and individuals often go unnoticed to conservations, hunters, and other citizens of Kansas, so the CAP awards honor Kansans who have devoted themselves to conserving the state’s natural resources. Whether through education, communication, or on-ground habitat work, such dedicated people are eligible for CAP awards.
KWF honors those who have made special efforts in the areas of land and soil conservation, youth conservation, conservation communication, conservation education, wildlife management and conservation, water conservation, conservation legislator, conservation farmer/rancher, forestry conservation, stream team conservation, outdoor skills, and conservation organization. A Conservationist Of the Year award is presented as the top prize. Make sure to nominate any deserving individual that you know in Kansas. Nominations are due by December 1. For more information, phone Ken Brunson at 620-672-0792.
