Stevens Worldwide Van Lines is very pleased to announce that our own chairman and CEO, Morrie Stevens Sr., was recently elected President of the Boone and Crockett Club, the oldest-running conservation club in the United States. Stevens is the 31st president in the club's storied 127-year history, after having previously served as executive vice president.
Morrie Stevens Sr. is well-known in conservation circles for his steadfast dedication to wildlife preservation in the state of Michigan. In addition to his ongoing dedication to the Boone and Crockett Club, Stevens also helped create the Michigan State University Boone and Crockett Quantitative Wildlife Laboratory, and is a valued board member of the National Wild Turkey Federation and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
Having grown up next to the Tittabawassee River, Stevens has had a close connection with nature's riches since his days as a youth. He says protecting Michigan's picturesque wildlife, as well as helping to reconnect today's younger generation with the outdoors remains a personal mission of his.
“Today we simply have too many obstacles for our kids to be outdoors, and something very special will be lost if we can't remove these barriers," Stevens told Mlive.com. Stevens also believes it necessary to educate the public on the historical contributions of both the hunting and fishing communities toward nature conservation.
The Boone and Crockett Club was founded in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt. Based in Missoula, Montana, the group concentrates its efforts on preserving wildlife in the United States and informing the public about “best practices” for conservation.
