From The Denver Post:
The Colorado Wildlife Federation’s annual banquet is Saturday at the Plaza of the Mart, just east of the Interstate 25 and 58th Avenue in Denver. As the state’s oldest conservation organization, the CWF continues to work as a voice for sportsmen and others who value Colorado’s wildlife heritage and tradition of stewardship. Ongoing efforts include key energy development legislation and protection of wildlife habitat, as well as more traditional hunting and fishing issues. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., with dinner at 6 p.m. The evening will include an auction for wildlife items, archery instruction and a rafting trip. All proceeds go toward the CWF’s efforts on behalf of wildlife.
Banquet honorees include Polly Reetz of the Audubon Society of Greater Denver; Dave Petersen, an outdoor writer, avid bow hunter and most recently a Trout Unlimited spokesman; and Judith Kohler, a veteran Associated Press reporter whose in-depth coverage of Western natural resource issues has brought nationwide attention to efforts to protect the Rocky Mountain region’s wildlife.
“We urge all those who care about the wildlife heritage of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West to join us,” said Suzanne O’Neill, executive director of the CWF. “The banquet will be a fun evening that will encourage us for the important work ahead to sustain the wildlife that defines Colorado as one of the most treasured places in our nation and the world.”
Cost is $40 per person. For more information, go to the CWF website at coloradowildlife.org.
