Each year, the Foundation hosts the Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame Banquet, recognizing men and women from across the state who have been instrumental in expanding the use and enjoyment of Arkansas's outdoor resources and broadening conservation education. The proceeds from this event support the year-around work of the Foundation.
Approximately 1,500 people attend the annual banquet that is held at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock each August. The program includes a live and silent auction, dinner, Hall of Fame raffle, induction of Hall of Fame nominees, and the presentation of the Legacy Award, selected by the Foundation's Nominating Committee. The Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame began in 1992 and has inducted 90 members thus far.
The Foundation Board of Directors recently made a tough, but wise decision to postpone the 2020 Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame banquet due to the implications of Covid-19. In lieu of a physical event, the Foundation has created the "2020 Outdoor Hall of Fame Campaign," complete with a "Super Silent" online auction that will feature the latest hunting and fishing gear, boats, ATVs, campers, hunting trips, experience packages, and more!
