Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jim Risch received the “Teaming With Wildlife” award this week from the Teaming With Wildlife Coalition in recognition of his support for the State and Tribal Wildlife Grants Program. The program itself supports conservation work and protects species before they wind up under federal management.
“I recognize that I am receiving this award because of hardworking Idahoans who work to maximize every dollar of the state wildlife grant funding I’ve worked to secure and to keep species off of the endangered species list,” said Risch.
