M. Kevin Destruel is co-owner of Mead Clark Lumber Company, a third-generation family-owned business in Sonoma County, where he has worked since graduating from UC Berkeley. His dedication to wildlife conservation results from his love of the outdoors and his passion for hunting. “I just wanted to see more put back in than was ever taken out,” he explains.
Kevin’s godfather, Jim Codding, was the first president of Mzuri Wildlife Foundation. Kevin has continued this legacy, serving multiple terms as the Foundation’s board president. Kevin was recently selected as the 2020 Steven E. Nelson Sportsman of the Year, an award which recognizes a lifetime of achievement in international hunting and conservation. He and his wife, Karen, share a home in Texas.
