NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Albert (Al) Bobrofsky has been a dedicated volunteer for more than 30 years. In recognition of his passion for conservation, he recently earned a national award from the National Wild Turkey Federation.
Bobrofsky, of Battle Creek, Michigan, received one of five Roger M. Latham Sportsman Wild Turkey Service Awards at the 41st annual NWTF Convention and Sport Show in Nashville.
Roger M. Latham Sportsman Wild Turkey Service Awards are given to NWTF members who are not employed as professional wildlife managers, but have made significant contributions to wild turkey conservation.
“Just being recognized for my over 33 years means that my little commitment to our mission has been time well spent,” Bobrofsky said. “But now, it is time to dig in and work harder to further it.”
The NWTF determined this year’s award winners based on how their work strengthens the Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. From serving in his local chapter to serving three terms on the National Board of Directors, Bobrofsky has volunteered in just about every position at the NWTF. His passion for conserving natural resources and sharing hunting experiences with those around him has made lasting impacts to be felt for generations.
“Al has faithfully and energetically contributed to the NWTF in nearly every service role possible – volunteer, local and state leader, national board member – and is now a Golden Spur,” said George Thornton, NWTF CEO. “His commitment to the NWTF is exemplary, and we are honored to recognize his achievements.”
