Nominations are open for the ‘Wyoming Youth Conservationist of the Year’
Wyoming Game and Fish is accepting nominations for its newly-created ‘Wyoming Youth Conservationist of the Year’. This award recognizes Wyoming youth who have demonstrated leadership and accomplishment in any aspect of conservation, either individually or as part of a group.
“Wyoming youth are making fantastic contributions to our state’s outdoors and wildlife in many ways,” said Brian Nesvik, Game and Fish director. “We created this award to recognize youth who are already doing great things for our state and to encourage other young people to take on projects that help conserve our natural resources for the future.”
