With over 33,000 members in over 130 branches across the province, few organizations have stood the test of time quite like the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation, who this year celebrates their 91stAnnual Convention from Feb 20 to 22 in Weyburn, Sk.
The convention draws Saskatchewan conservationists of all walks of life together to discuss conservation issues, participate in workshops, debate resolutions, develop policy, review SWF program updates, and attend presentations on wildlife, fisheries, and enforcement.
“Our annual convention is the SWF’s premier opportunity to bring together a diverse cross-section of members from all across this great province to engage in discussion and raise concerns around our wildlife and fisheries resources, as well as all outdoor activities that all Saskatchewan residents have the privilege to enjoy,” says Clark Schultz, SWF President.
The SWF will be conducting a fundraising event and two awards banquets recognizing member and branch achievements and milestones over the three evenings.
“We’re thrilled to have the Hon. Dustin Duncan, Minster of Environment, who will be our guest speaker Thursday afternoon”, said Darrell Crabbe, Executive Director.
The 2020 Convention revolves around the theme of “Ensuring Our Outdoor Heritage Legacy”. It is fitting that the SWF and its branches have come together for the last 91 years to ensure a legacy of conservation for generations to come.
