The Pope and Young Club Supports Boone & Crockett Conservation Education Program
The Pope and Young Club is proud to announce support for the Boone and Crockett Club’s Conservation Education Program. The grant will go towards the purchase of a mobile cargo trailer (the B&C Club Archery-Mobile (BCAM)) and NASP approved archery equipment. The B&C staff will use the trailer and equipment to deliver the National Archery in the Schools Program to public schools that currently do not offer NASP. This project will put bows and arrows in the hands of thousands of youth and will benefit wildlife conservation and the sport of bowhunting by providing education and knowledge.
“Being able to work with and receive support from the Pope and Young Club is a unique aspect of this program,” said B&C Conservation Programs Manager Luke Coccoli. “Bringing together two of the greatest hunter-conservationist organizations and teaming up to accomplish both groups education and outreach goals is a dream come true and a partnership we hope to continue for a long time to come. NASP is a great program that has been proven again and again across the country. With the support from P&Y and the resources and location B&C possess this is sure to be a fun, safe and educational program. A success for conservation education and all involved!”
“As Conservation Chair of the Pope & Young Club, it’s truly an honor to award ‘the Boone and Crockett Club’s Conservation Education Program’ with a 2017/2018 grant through the P&Y Conservation program,” said Merritt Compton. “Getting our youth involved in bowhunting and educated about the role bowhunters play in conservation is one of the highest priorities of the Pope and Young Club’s Conservation Program.”
