Prairie State Outdoors

The Illinois Conservation Foundation will induct four new members into
the Illinois Outdoor Hall of Fame at its annual banquet March 26 in
Oakbrook.

The Class of 2011 includes:

Dr. Thomas Dunstan, Macomb

Dunstan is professor emeritus of biology at Western Illinois University,
where he became an authority on birds of prey. He worked with government
agencies to protect and expand habitat for the American bald eagle.

He also promoted awareness of eagles through bald eagle events and a
variety of popular and scientific publications, including writing an
article for National Geographic magazine.

Dr. David Kenney, O’Fallon, Mo.

Kenney is professor emeritus of political science at Southern Illinois
University Carbondale. He is a historian, author and conservationist who
served as director of the Illinois Department of Conservation from 1977
to 1984. 

During his tenure, the department saw the completion of the Jake Wolf
Fish Hatchery and the Helfrich Game Propagation Center. He also backed
trail development and the acquisition of additional public lands.
He continued to work on a number of conservation issues following his
retirement.

Bob Long Jr., Chicago

Long is “The Fishin’ Guy” for the Chicago Park District. He is known as
an advocate and promoter of youth participation in fishing.

He became involved in 1991 when he joined the Fishin’ Buddies fishing
and conservation education program on Chicago’s south side. 

Long has managed Chicago Mayor Richard Daley’s “Fish ‘N Kids” program
through the Chicago Park District, providing fishing opportunities at
park district lagoons, the Chicago River and the Chicago lakefront.

The program has reached more than 12,000 children and their families
each year. 

Ed Mullady, Kankakee

Mullady has published The Sportsman’s Letter since 1958. Nominators
refer to him as the “Godfather of the Kankakee River” in recognition of
his dedication to protecting the Kankakee River basin.

Mullady also hosts the “Sportsman’s Letter” show on radio station WKAN
and conducts fishing seminars.

He received the 2001 Isaak Walton League “Russell Sinclair News Media
