Rep. Lynda Wilson honored by sportsmen, named Legislator of the Year
An avid outdoorswoman, Rep. Lynda Wilson was named 'Legislator of the Year' by the Hunters Heritage Council (HHC). Wilson was honored during the Southwest Washington Safari Club International dinner held April 2 in Vancouver.
“Receiving this award is a tremendous honor and I am grateful to the HHC for all they do to support sportsmen in Washington,” said Wilson, R-Vancouver. “Hunting and outdoor activities are an important part of mine and my family's life, as it is for many Washingtonians. Organizations like the Hunters Heritage Council and Safari Club International provide resources so people can carry on these proud traditions in a safe and responsible way. I will continue to promote the values of conservation and education associated with hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities to preserve these opportunities for future generations.”
Southwest Washington Safari Club International focuses on wildlife conservation, hunters' rights and safety, youth education and humanitarian efforts, including their Sportsmen Against Hunger program. Members have also worked closely with Native American tribes to restore the Whitetail deer population on tribal lands.
The HHC is Washington's largest hunting-rights organization with nearly 50 organizations representing 45,000 members.
