2013 Commission Awards
 
 

The annual Arizona Game and Fish Commission Awards Banquet was held on Saturday, January 11, 2014, at the Carefree Resort & Conference Center, 37220 Mule Train Road, Carefree, AZ 85377. The event honored the recipients of the 2013 Commission Awards that were selected at the Commission’s September 6-7, 2013 meeting (see below). The purpose of these awards are to recognize Arizonans who have contributed significantly to the conservation of the state's wildlife, its outdoor heritage, and the mission of the Arizona Game and Fish Department.

The Arizona Game and Fish Commission held its first annual awards banquet on January 12, 1991. Since then, a total of 330 recipients have been recognized with Commission awards. The awards banquet gives the Commission an opportunity to recognize individual and organizational award recipients for their contributions to Arizona’s wildlife resources.

Many thanks go out to our sponsoring organizations that help make this event possible.  This year’s sponsors were:  The Nature Conservancy, Wildlife for Tomorrow, National Wild Turkey Federation, Yuma Valley Rod and Gun Club, Arizona Antelope Foundation, Arizona Sportsmen for Wildlife Conservation, and Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Society.
