The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership's 10th Annual Capital Conservation Awards Dinner (CCAD) will be held Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
The TRCP’s CCAD is an annual awards gala and fundraising event that brings together more than 400 conservationists, elected officials, policymakers, and business leaders who share a commitment to our hunting and fishing traditions. The night’s main focus is honoring three individuals whose work has made a lasting difference for conservation.
It is a chance to celebrate that conservation is, and always has been, bipartisan and uniquely American.
The event also features exciting live and silent auctions with the opportunity to take home some of the best in hunting and fishing trips and gear. The CCAD is one of Washington’s best-attended conservation celebrations, regularly attracting more than 30 members of Congress, as well as senior Administration officials.
In 2017, we awarded our Conservation Achievement Award to outdoorsman, writer, and television personality Steven Rinella, who has been an outstanding advocate for public lands and hunting ethics; our James D. Range Conservation Awards were given to Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO) and Governor Matt Mead (R-WY) for their efforts to conserve sage grouse and public lands more broadly. Our 2017 event also featured remarks by co-emcees Tucker Carlson & Rachel Maddow. Learn more about our 2017 event here. Our 2018 honorees and special guests will be announced soon.
