DNR Fish & Wildlife honors employees for conservation efforts
Start Date: 3/6/2017 All Day
Event Description:

Two employees of the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife have earned recognition for their conservation efforts last year.

The division named Patrick Mayer, north region private lands manager, as its 2016 Conservation Champion and honored laborer Cindy Devine of the Curtis Creek Fish Hatchery with its Conservation Cornerstone Award.

Their hard work and dedication directly benefited Indiana’s hunters, anglers, trappers and other nature enthusiasts.

Among many accomplishments last year, Mayer developed and carried out a federally required habitat monitoring program, assisted with a new deer conflict policy and helped guide the development of a new state program to promote grassland habitat for pollinator species, gamebirds and songbirds.

Devine, who has worked for DNR for 30 years, kept Curtis Creek Fish Hatchery running during the year-long absence of a property manager. Her supervisors said she nearly single-handedly completed all the administrative, operational and management responsibilities of a property manager while also doing her normal job. 

 Devine scheduled employee shifts, coordinated fish production schedules, ordered feed, plowed snow, cut the grass, fixed plumbing problems and more.
