Conservation nominations taken through Tuesday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Wildlife Federation is accepting nominations through Tuesday for conservation achievement.

Winners will be honored April 18 in Nashville. The federation has sponsored such annual awards since 1965.

Winners for their stewardship of wildlife and their habitat will be chosen by federation staff, board representatives, conservation professionals and members of the media.

Michael Butler, the federation's CEO, said without the contributions of past winners, the organization would have failed in its mission.
