There are many ways to help support SCI Foundation’s educational efforts – from attending the wildly entertaining education Sables luncheon and fundraising auction at the Annual SCI Convention to outright operational and restricted gifts of all levels to directly support our program priorities.

One specific and tangible way to help our flagship education program, the AWLS in Jackson, WY is to fund items on our Wish List of needs via a gift of cash or in-kind.

Education Sables (our volunteer leadership group) appreciate the continued support from SCI Chapters and Individual donors for AWLS programs and facilities.  It is through AWLS that SCI Foundation communicates with educators and promotes science-based wildlife management, conservation and the positive role of hunting.  Educating the next generation about sustainable-use wildlife conservation and the hunting tradition is critical to maintain our hunting heritage. Over the last 30 years we’ve reached millions of youth through our combined educational outreach efforts – help us do more!

Below our staff has outlined $47,800 of operational and capital-related needs to improve an enhance our AWLS.  Please help us by supporting our Wish List today.
