Crockett County Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce Ward Walker 7-Oaks Ranch as Wildlife Conservationist of the Year.

The award was presented at the Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet held on April 5. Wayne Walker accepted the award from Jack Baggett, director of the Crockett County SWCD. The ranch, located south of Ozona, is owned by Kelly Walker. His three sons, Philip, Wayne and Caton are the fifth generation.

The 7-Oaks derives its name from a large stand of oaks outside the ranch house. Though Kelly and his sons lived in Tyler, the boys spent summers and holidays at the ranch with their grandparents Jack and Ellen Ward. During many years spent listening to their grandparents, they learned much of the history and problems that the family faced.
