Wes Erdle, fisheries development project manager for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department in Bismarck, received the agency’s Director’s Award for professional excellence at the department’s annual staff meeting in December.
Jeb Williams, Game and Fish director, said Erdle and his crew are responsible for all new boat ramps undertaken by the department, and he is solely responsible for coordination and management of development staff, contractors, entities and landowners.
“The amount of planning and prioritizing to make the development program effective is enormous,” Williams said. “Wes serves as the engineer, foreman and lead equipment operator. He is extremely motivated, ambitious and hard-working, and we are fortunate to have him working on our team.”
