At Field & Stream’s sixth annual Heroes of Conservation awards gala, the outdoor media company presented David Ramsey with the Conservation Hero of the Year award for his efforts in securing the 10,000-acre Rocky Fork Watershed for public use as a wildlife management area. As part of his prize, he was awarded a Toyota Tundra truck.

Ramsey, of Unicoi, Tenn., told Field & Stream: “I am completely overwhelmed by this award and this event.”

Field & Stream’s Heroes of Conservation program recognizes people who give of themselves to protect the resource. Jerod Harman, the West Virginia B.A.S.S. Federation Nation’s conservation director, was selected as an honoree in the July issue of Field & Stream Magazine.

“The conservation work of these heroes paints all outdoorsmen in a positive light,” said country music singer Craig Morgan, who hosted the awards gala. “People don’t realize the environmental impact hunters and fishermen have, not to mention the financial impact. It’s important that we as conservationists continue to get involved and educate the community on what we bring to the table.”
