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.
Circle your calendar for Saturday, August 29th for the 2020 Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame Banquet! This year, we will honor Hank Browne, Jerrell and Penny Dodson, Mark Davis and the Mahony Family for their dedication to conservation and their many other contributions which have enhanced Arkansas’s hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation opportunities for all.
