Fly Rod and Reel Online: TRCP to Honor Sportsman-Conservationist Giants

The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership will honor media mogul Ted Turner, Sen. Jon Tester and Rep. Mike Simpson at the fifth TRCP Capital Conservation Awards next week. The annual event recognizes the contributions of leaders in the sportsmen’s community, bringing together policymakers, conservationists, hunters and anglers to celebrate the TRCP’s mission and America’s outdoors legacy.

“Jon Tester has distinguished himself in the Senate through his unwavering support of measures that benefit both natural resources and sportsmen,” stated Fosburgh. “Moreover, he has worked to bring disparate parties together to solve tough issues, including his Forest Jobs and Recreation Act and the Public Lands Renewable Development Act, which would conserve lands and waters critical to hunting and angling and provide for long-term timber harvest in Montana. We owe a debt of gratitude to Senator Tester for his ongoing advocacy of sportsmen’s values.”
