Excellence in Tribal Conservation

Thank you to all.

“Native American Tribes are doing some awesome things in the management of natural resources!”

We appreciate all the recipients that have worked hard to make a difference.

The NAFWS uniquely serves as a communication network between tribal, federal, and state fish and wildlife management entities to provide conferences for tribal natural resource managers, youth education, and training for tribal conservation law enforcement officers while partnering with other entities to meet its mission.

In Recognition of Their Support

The Native American Fish and Wildlife Society would like to thank those organizations that provided us with support over the years. With them we grew an effective national communications network for the exchange of information and management techniques related to self-determined tribal fish and wildlife management.
