EDGEFIELD, S.C. - Conservation Officer Robert Mlynar with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will be honored by the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) for his efforts in conserving America's wildlife.

Mlynar, of Aitkin, Minn., will be recognized as the NWTF's Minnesota Wildlife Law Enforcement Officer of the Year during its 34th annual National Convention and Sport Show, sponsored by MidwayUSA, to be held Feb. 18 to Feb. 21 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn.

The NWTF initiated the State Wildlife Law Enforcement Officer of the Year award in 2000 to acknowledge top officers such as Mlynar across North America.

"Robert's optimistic demeanor and ability to create a successful approach to complex cases has established him as a leader among his peers. He has an exemplary work history and deserves this recognition," said Marlo Sloan, NWTF Minnesota State Chapter president.

By earning the State Wildlife Officer of the Year award, Mlynar and other state winners are eligible for the NWTF's National Law Enforcement Officer of the Year award, which will be presented during the NWTF's Awards Banquet Saturday, Feb. 20, during the convention.

The NWTF is a national nonprofit conservation organization that is dedicated to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage. Through dynamic partnerships with state, federal and provincial wildlife agencies, the NWTF and its members have helped restore wild turkey populations across the country, raised and spent more than $306 million, and conserved nearly 14 million acres of habitat for all types of wildlife.
