The Fernie Rod and Gun Club have won an award at the B.C. Wildlife Federation annual general meeting for the work they did last year on the Wigwam flats.

The club won the Roderick Haig-Brown conservation award for the Wigwam Flats Wildlife Enhancement Slashing project.

The prestigious award recognizes the accomplishments of a club whose recently completed conservation project is deemed most worthy.

The award is a tribute to a long-time resident of Campbell River, who was a world renowned writer, lecturer and conservationist.

In addition to the magnificent trophy, a totem pole mounted on a wooden base, carved by Ellen Neale, a renowned West Coast Indian artist, the winner receives a cash grant.
