Conservation Awards Banquet Postponed and COVID-19 Response

In accordance with the latest guidelines by the CDC related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, Louisiana Wildlife Federation is postponing the 56th Conservation Achievement Awards banquet previously scheduled for May 1.

This affects the timeline of the 2019 Youth Hunter of the Year Awards and the 2019 Conservation Achievement Awards. Nominators for awards will be contacted soon with updates and follow-up as we make adjustments to meet the temporary challenges related to judging and presentation.

The nomination form is still open until Sunday, March 22 if you got delayed in submitting a nomination for the 2019 Conservation Achievement Awards.

If you have any questions or concerns about either program, please contact Rebecca Triche at

We look forward to rescheduling the banquet when it is prudent to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


As COVID-19 continues to slowly spread throughout the global community, our priority is the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers, and members.

Effective Tuesday, March 17, Louisiana Wildlife Federation staff are operating primarily in a remote working environment. You can reach us by email or cell phone and we will be able to check messages to the office phone. We will also communicate information through the LWF website.

Be well,
Rebecca Triche, Executive Director
