Mary Dudley Named Conservationist of the Year

The Idaho Wildlife Federation has named Mary Dudley this year's Conservationist of the Year. As Southwest Regional Volunteer Coordinator, Dudley is responsible for developing volunteer projects to improve and restore habitat for an abundance of wildlife. That includes recruiting, organizing, and supervising volunteers on numerous projects. The Idaho Wildlife Federation newsletter described Dudley's service this way: "Mary is recognized for her years of dedication and leadership in recruiting volunteers to participate in wildlife habitat restoration projects in southwestern Idaho. In addition to securing the participation of adult volunteers Mary worked hard and has been very successful in getting Idaho students to participate in wildlife habitat restoration and other projects that directly and indirectly affect Idaho's wildlife. Mary has been instrumental in securing significant funding to carry out the volunteer projects and is working on communicating wildlife needs as well as informing people of the accomplishments of the many volunteers. For her exemplary leadership and significant accomplishments on behalf of Idaho's wildlife, IWF selected Mary for Conservationist of the Year."
