About the Outdoor Hall of Fame
The Arizona Outdoor Hall of Fame was developed in 1998 by the Wildlife for Tomorrow Foundation.
Induction into the Outdoor Hall of Fame gives recognition to individuals and organizations that have worked consistently over many years through political and individual leadership, volunteer service, the mass media, conservation efforts, or educational activities on behalf of Arizona’s natural and wildlife resources and outdoor recreation heritage. Prior inductees include Ben Avery, Barry Goldwater, Mo Udall, Larry Toschik, Tom Woods and many conservation and sportsmen’s groups active in the state, as well as conservation-minded companies such as Arizona Public Service and Salt River Project.
Nominations for induction are reviewed each year by the board of directors of the Wildlife for Tomorrow Foundation. Selections are made from a list of nominations that are submitted, including those submitted by members of the public.
