Who Are We?

The California Outdoors Hall of Fame

California Outdoors Hall of Fame Logo

This site is dedicated to honoring the achievements of the inducted members, the Circle of Chiefs, their continuing outreach to the California public and the spirit of their legacy to our State and the Outdoors. We strive to continue the work they started, inspiring the next generation to adventure and service.

The California Outdoors Hall of Fame recognizes individuals with a profound scope of outdoor accomplishments that have impacted others and improved the lives of Californians. Personal achievement by itself, on the other hand, merits less consideration.

All candidates must fill two requirements:

1. The nominees have inspired thousands of Californians to take part in the great outdoors and/or conservation.
2. The nominees must have taken part in a paramount scope of adventures.

Anybody can nominate an entrant. Entrants can nominate themselves. Entrees must include a 200 to 250-word biography or will be disqualified.

Voting is conducted in early winter by past winners, the Circle of Chiefs, and leaders in outdoors media, government, and industry, who vote anonymously, free of faction. The annual awards are announced in January at the International Sportsmen’s Expo in Sacramento. Inductees become members of the Circle of Chiefs.
