The Arizona Outdoor Hall of Fame was established in 1998 by the Wildlife for Tomorrow Foundation to honor those who have made significant contributions to Arizona’s wildlife, the welfare of its natural resources, and the state’s outdoor heritage. Selections for induction are made each year by the board of directors of the Wildlife for Tomorrow Foundation from a list of nominations submitted.
Wildlife for Tomorrow is a fundraising non-profit foundation enhancing the protection, management and enjoyment of Arizona wildlife. The Foundation works closely with the Arizona Game and Fish Department as its 501(c)(3) charity identifying needs where existing funding sources are inadequate and distributing donors’ tax-deductible gifts to benefit our state's diverse wildlife resources.
