Local Boy Honored By MS Wildlife Federation

On February 22, 2014, the Mississippi Wildlife Federation will hold its 54th Annual Conservation Achievement Awards Banquet.  There, they will honor a number of conservationists, including Rankin Countian Ryan Seawright, Youth Conservationist of the Year.  Ryan, you will recall, constructed and installed the fishing line receptacles around the Reservoir.  He did this as part of his Eagle Scout project.  Now, he is receiving a well-deserved award for his efforts.  Congratulations, Ryan, and thank you for your work to improve our community.

The Banquet is at the Jackson Hilton and begins at 5:30 p.m.  Follow the link above if you are interested.  The MWF is the long-standing organization that brings you Outdoorama, the Wildlife Extravaganza, Katfishin Kids, Gator Bait Race, and other great outdoor events that highlight the Reservoir.
