The convention draws conservationists of all walks of life together to discuss conservation issues, participate in workshops, debate resolutions, develop policy, review SWF program updates, and attend presentations on wildlife, fisheries and enforcement.

“Our annual convention is the SWF’s premier opportunity to bring together a diverse cross-section of members from all across this great province to engage in discussion and raise concerns around our wildlife and fisheries resources, as well as all outdoor activities that all Saskatchewan residents have the privilege to enjoy,” said Clark Schultz, SWF president.

The SWF will conduct a fundraising event and two awards banquets to recognize member and branch achievements and milestones over the three evenings.

Weyburn-Big Muddy MLA and Environment minister Dustin Duncan will be the guest speaker on Thursday afternoon.

The 2020 convention will revolve around the theme of “Ensuring Our Outdoor Heritage Legacy”.
