2016 AZTWS Chapter Awards

This year we added two new annual awards, to recognize lifetime achievement and outstanding service to the chapter. The Arizona Chapter recognizes outstanding accomplishments in wildlife management, both by professionals and laymen, by bestowing awards at each year’s Joint Annual Meeting, held in February. This year marked the 50th Joint Annual Meeting of the Arizona and New Mexico Wildlife and Fisheries Societies and was hosted in Farmington, NM. We encourage our members to nominate deserving people or organizations for the awards, and as has been the case in the past, our chapter was privileged this year to receive numerous nominations for well-deserving individuals working in the wildlife management field. Below are summaries of each award, awardee, and the outstanding achievements for which they were nominated.

We congratulate each of our deserving 2016 awardees:

2014 AZTWS Chapter Awards

Doug Morrison Award

The Doug Morrison Award is given in memory of Doug Morrison to an Arizona Biologist in a non-supervisory position who has made significant contributions to the management and conservation of wildlife in Arizona. This Award exemplifies the dedicated work ethic of the Chapter’s former President and U.S. Forest Service Biologist, Doug Morrison. Contributions are in areas of wildlife research, education and training, management, or law enforcement.

This year, the Doug Morrison was presented to Brenda Strohmeyer. Brenda is currently employed as a supervisory biological technician at Rocky Mountain Research Station in Flagstaff. In particular, I nominate Brenda based on her participation in the Flagstaff Festival of Science – one of the best events held in Flagstaff. It is a huge event in the Flagstaff community and takes an enormous amount of work to organize.
