The California Outdoors Hall of Fame recognizes California’s greatest outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen. These are people who have dedicated themselves to advancing the understanding of, appreciation for and conservation of California’s great outdoors.

The California Outdoors Hall of Fame strives to sustain what they accomplished, inspiring future generations toward adventure and conservation.

2. Nominees must have taken part in a paramount scope of adventures.
