Ned Weston Memorial Scholarship

Ned Weston was a trapper and a wildlife conservation officer. More importantly Ned was a mentor, a teacher, and a friend to everyone he met. Ned’s life revolved around protecting wildlife and the habitat so critical to its existence. Ned adamantly promoted ethics, responsibility, and professional wildlife management. Ned’s life provided a standard for all of us to emulate. It is the desire of the Pennsylvania Trapper’s Association to provide this scholarship to an individual that is willing to accept this standard in the advancement of wildlife management in Pennsylvania.
