Nominations are now being accepted for the 2016 Wyoming Outdoor Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame honors individuals, both living and posthumously, who have made significant, lasting lifetime contributions to the conservation of Wyoming’s outdoor heritage. Nominations are being accepted online until June 30.
Since 2004, the Outdoor Hall of Fame has recognized individuals who have worked consistently over many years to conserve Wyoming’s natural resources through volunteer service, environmental restoration, educational activities, audio/visual and written media, the arts, and political and individual leadership.
“The Wyoming Outdoor Hall of Fame celebrates the many conservationists and sportsmen across Wyoming who work to ensure the wildlife resources in Wyoming remain plentiful for future generations,” said Scott Talbott, director of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
A full nominations packet, including the standards for induction, are available on the Game and Fish website. Past inductees are also listed. Some inductees include Curt Gowdy, Olaus and Mardy Murie, President Theodore Roosevelt and Bill Cody.
The induction ceremony will take place in Cody at the Buffalo Bill Center for the West on October 22. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department invites the public to come and celebrate this year’s class. Tickets and information are available online.
