The top two goals of the Game Warden Museum are to honor the heroes of this profession and educate the public about them. While this has a lot to do with fallen officers we also want to celebrate our living heroes. They are many and varied, but we need your help finding them.
If you’re an outdoors enthusiast, tell us your personal story of a first or memorable meeting with a Conservation Officer. If you’re the family of a past, present or future wildlife officer, share the reasons you believe in this profession and its champions.
Wildlife officers: please tell us about the outstanding Game Wardens of your agency or association, whether retired, fallen or active officers. Be creative: we need to pay tribute to our peers who are heroes in their very own small and local way as well as the big time heroes.
Some ideas to consider:
- We want to recognize Game Wardens who have initiated programs or creative ways of doing their jobs. Who are the Game Wardens you know who have performed acts of heroism – large or small – and saved people, critters, forests, lakes?
- Game Wardens often contribute in significant ways to their communities: volunteering in schools and churches, helping the aged or poor, donating blood in crisis times. Do you know one?
- There are many Game Wardens who have donated their time and resources to help out Wildlife Professionals or others in third world countries. Tell us about them.
- Do you know a Game Warden who has earned recognition as an athlete, movie star, media celebrity, politician, business tycoon?
Please email us a few sentences firstname.lastname@example.org about the outstanding Game Warden in your life and assist us in our effort to educate the public about the profession and recognize its heroes.
Thanks so much for your participation in this effort.
Game Warden Museum Board President, Dave Grant
