In 1998, WFT and the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) joined forces to establish the Arizona Outdoor Hall of Fame. This prestigious award honors individuals and organizations that have made remarkable and enduring contributions towards the conservation of Arizona’s wildlife, the preservation of its natural resources, and the promotion of the state’s outdoor heritage.

This year’s inductees will be honored at the annual Outdoor Hall of Fame Banquet to be held August 24 at the Wigwam Resort, located in Litchfield Park.

Past Outdoor Hall of Fame inductees have been individuals with backgrounds in wildlife volunteerism, corporate leadership, politics, wildlife and the media, including Ben Avery, Barry Goldwater, Morris Udall, John McCain, Bill Quimby, Tom Woods, and Steve Hirsch, as well as groups and organizations such as Adobe Mountain Wildlife Center Volunteers, Arizona Antelope Foundation, Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club, Arizona Deer Association, National Wild Turkey Federation, Audubon Arizona, Arizona Public Service, Salt River Project, and others (see list of past inductees here – scroll to the bottom of that page).

Wildlife for Tomorrow was created in 1990 to enhance the management, protection and enjoyment of Arizona’s fish and wildlife resources. As the official 501(c)(3) partner of AZGFD, WFT works to provide funds to advance key programs and initiatives beyond AZGFD’s self-funding capacity. For more information, visit
