Cheyenne - Nominate conservationists — past and present — until Dec. 3 for the 2019 Wyoming Outdoor Hall of Fame class. Potential inductees are those who made a significant, lasting, lifetime contribution to the conservation of Wyoming's outdoor heritage.

“The Wyoming Outdoor Hall of Fame honors conservationists who work to ensure the wildlife resources in Wyoming remain for future generations,” said Scott Talbott, director of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. “I invite you to submit a nomination this year to honor a person who has given his or her life’s work to Wyoming’s outdoors.”

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. Last year’s inductees included Gary B. Butler, William G. Hepworth and Dr. George T. Baxter (posthumously).

The induction ceremony will take place in Cody at the Buffalo Bill Center for the West in March; tickets will be available for the public to attend.

A nomination packet, an outline of criteria for consideration and full listing of previous inductees are available on the Game and Fish website.
