This presentation by Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Chief Warden, Randy Stark, looks back in history and focuses on the role the hunting community has played in contributing to the overall conservation movement in the United States since the late 1800’s and the development of the North American Model of Conservation. The presentation will highlight key people and events to generate awareness about the role hunters have played in conserving natural resources both nationally and in Wisconsin.

In this capacity, he is responsible for the overall supervision, management and administration of the conservation and environmental enforcement programs in the State of Wisconsin. Stark was named the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation Conservationist of the Year for 2010, and he is currently the President of the National Association of Conservation Law Enforcement Chiefs.
