Brenda Valentine Named Tennessee Wildlife Federation Conservation Communicator of the Year
NWTF Spokesperson Brenda Valentine, a Henry County, Tenn., native and television personality, was named the 2013 Tennessee Wildlife Federations Conservation Communicator of the Year at the organizations Conservation Achievement Awards in Nashville.
These awards recognize individuals and organizations that have made meaningful contributions to conservation in Tennessee, and Brenda Valentine certainly fits that description, said Michael Butler, TWF chief executive officer.
Valentine is the co-host of the award-winning Bass Pro Shops Real Hunting TV program on the Outdoor Channel and King of Bucks, a Versus Channel program.
My husband and I own 300 acres in northwest Tennessee that we strive every day to make the very best wildlife habitat in the state, Valentine said. My happiest times are spent on the tractor and in the field improving food plots and woodlands, or just watching an assortment of wildlife thriving because of our labor. I have used this property to introduce children — without opportunity otherwise — and disabled sportsmen to an optimum hunting experience. The real conservation story is that the return is so much greater than the investment in so many ways. Everyone should be investing in conservation.
