Records, 1950 1975. 5 Linear Feet

The United Northern Sportsmen was organized on September 18, 1945. It has concerned itself with the conservation of wildlife, forests, waters, and other natural resources, and the promotion of local conservation projects such as conservation education, soil conservation, forest fire prevention, cleaning up our lakes, rivers and streams, restocking of fish and game, and safety in hunting,

fishing, and other outdoor activities. The United Northern Sportsmen

has affiliated with the Minnesota Conservation Federation which in

turn is an affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation.
