Visiting officer program
The North American Game Warden Museum invites all conservation officers from across North America to participate in the Museum’s Visiting Officer Program. Visiting officers stay at the International Peace Garden and spend their day at the Museum in their agency uniform meeting the public. This is a great opportunity for officers to promote their agency and to share information or stories with visitors to the Museum. Officers are encouraged to bring any displays, power points, handouts or any promotional DVDs they may have. Presentations can be as simple as the standard “who we are and what we do,” or can be more elaborate. Every officer has interesting stories and since every state and province is different, the material is always fresh.
The museum has had visiting officers from Idaho, Arizona, New York, Utah, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Montana, Manitoba, North Dakota, Washington and USF&W. Typically, officers stay for two to three days over a weekend. We go by many different names: Game Warden, Conservation Officer, Natural Resources Officer, Wildlife Officer, Environmental Police and the list goes on. Whatever your badge says, we are all part of the same brotherhood. That brotherhood is celebrated by the North American Game Warden Museum. If you or your agency is interested in participating in this program, please contact any Board Member found on the CONTACT page.
Wardens on wheels
Open to all Wardens. The annual Wardens on Wheels event is held each August. Riders from across Canada and the US meet at Metagoshie State Park in North Dakota. The group rides to the Museum to honor Fallen Officers. Typically, there is a short ceremony and snacks and drinks are provided. As many as forty bikers have participated.
