CONSERVATION, EDUCATION AND OUTREACH PROGRAM

Components of the Club’s Conservation Program include wildlife research, education, pro-bowhunting activities, partnerships, wildlife conservation projects and kids programs.

In a move that very visually reinforces the Club's commitment and focus as we enter our next 50 years of bowhunting advocacy, the Board of Directors recently expanded the scope of the Club's Conservation Fund by renaming it the Conservation, Education and Outreach Fund.


While maintaining the dedicated channel of funding for our Conservation Program and Grants, this move more-vividly defines the current and recent-past projects and programs which we have provided funding for, as well as now provides a dedicated funding mechanism for the Club's focus on outreach efforts.

Conservation, Education and Outreach Program Grants
 
The Club provides monetary and moral support through awarded grants. The conservation committee is responsible for soliciting and investigating proposals and recommending them to the Board of Directors on an annual basis. Recent Conservation Program budgets have exceeded $100,000 annually. Current and past Conservation Grants available HERE.

Conservation Achievement Awards

Through our three biennial conservation awards, the Club recognizes achievement by individuals and groups in doing conservation activities and, thereby, encouraging others to do the same. Achievement Award Recipients available HERE.
