Sponsorships for California Teachers
We have exciting news. The Mzuri Wildlife Foundation will sponsor seven California teachers to attend the eight day Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) Adult Wilderness Leadership School in 2016.
Adult Wilderness Leadership School
Nestled in the beautiful Bridger-Teton National Forest near Jackson, Wyoming, the Adult Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS) provides the perfect atmosphere for educational programs. Established in 1976 with the vision of providing educators with a useful hands-on experience to bring home to their classrooms, AWLS provides an accredited* conservation education program. Nearly 6,000 teachers have increased their knowledge of wildlife conservation, land management and outdoor ethics to offer to more than a million students annually.
*Educators receive continuing education units from AWLS and college credit through Colorado State University.
