FITCHBURG – Department of Natural Resources conservation warden Tyler Strelow, Fitchburg, was recognized recently for his outstanding law enforcement efforts during 2008 in the area of outdoor safety programs.
Warden Strelow, whose area of responsibility covers eastern Dane County, was honored as tops among his peers in the DNR’s 11-county South Central Region in administering and conducting safety programs and investigating accidents involving hunting, boating, ATV operation and snowmobiling.
“Tyler’s program addresses safety education as well as enforcement in Dane County,” noted warden supervisor Jeremy Plautz, Fitchburg. “He is a skilled taxidermist and has made several pheasant decoys for use in addressing road hunting problems.”
Warden Strelow was also recognized for helping motorists stranded on the interstate during a snowstorm last February and residents imperiled by the June floods.
