Last week at the Native American Fish and Wildlife Society's Great Lakes Region conference, 1854's Environmental Biologist, Darren Vogt, was awarded as the Biologist of the Year! Shakopee Mdwekanton hosted tribal natural resource management folks from Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota at Mystic Lake Resort and Casino. Participants listened to updates on funding sources, participated in a USDA wildlife trapping training, competed in a shoot, networked, and attended presentations on wildlife, fisheries, education and environmental projects. Congratulations Darren, and great job to all who coordinated, learned something new and shared their knowledge.
