Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks received three national awards recently for its conservation education and information efforts.

The awards were presented by the Association for Conservation Information, a 60-year-old association comprising information and education work groups and professionals representing state and federal natural resource agencies from across the country.

In the organization's annual competition for 1997:

Mike Gurnett, who produces film documentaries for FWP in Helena, received a second place award in the "Magazine Article" category for his article "Soul Music," which appeared in the March/April 1997 issue of Montana Outdoors Magazine.

Bill Thomas, FWP's information officer at the agency's Region 2 office in Missoula, also received a second place award in the "Video News Release" category for his work on a weekly FWP television Outdoor Report entitled "Bull Trout Redd."

The agency as a whole finished second in the "Regulations Production" category for the completely revised format of its Montana Fishing Regulations for 1998-99.
