The Pope and Young Club Continues Support For Jack Creek Preserve
The Pope and Young Club is proud to announce their continued support for Jack Creek Preserve through the Club's Conservation, Education, and Outreach fund. The grant awarded by the Pope and Young club will go towards the purchase of new archery equipment, camp scholarships, and general upkeep of their campgrounds.
"As Conservation Chair of the Pope and Young Club, it's truly an honor to award a grant to the ‘Jack Creek Preserve Summer Camps', through our 2017/2018 grant program," said Merritt Compton. "The Pope and Young Club has been a long-time supporter of Jack Creek Preserve, and we see their efforts to create new, educated bowhunters as vital to our core mission. By helping organizations that are focused on creating new bowhunters and giving them a working knowledge of conservation issues and fair chase ethics, the Pope and Young Club is working to protect the future of our bowhunting heritage."
"In the coming year, this funding will go towards the purchase of new archery equipment, camp scholarships, and general upkeep of the campgrounds," said Jack Creek Preserve Executive Director, Sarah Tilt. "In 2016, the Pope and Young Club grant awarded to the Jack Creek Preserve, helped host sixty teens, with fourteen earning their Bowhunter Education Certificate. These grants have helped develop four separate scholarships."
