MONTANA — The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, a Montana-based sportsmen and conservation group, presented U.S. Senator Steve Daines with their first-ever Excellence in Advocacy Award for his bipartisan work on conservation and forest management.
“Conservation is part of our way of life in Montana, and an issue that brings both sides together. As a fifth generation Montanan and avid hunter, I know just how important it is that we conserve our great outdoors and increase access to public lands,” Daines said. “I’m thankful to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for its partnership over the years and for presenting me with the Excellence in Advocacy Award. I look forward to continuing to work together on important issues like wildlife and forest management.”
Daines was instrumental in getting the historic “Great American Outdoors Act” signed into law, which increases access to public lands and promotes outdoor recreation, and he is working to get several bipartisan forest management bills signed into law that would help reduce catastrophic wildfires, restore wildlife habitat, and support timber jobs.
