Outdoor Sports & Education
We invest in organizations that cultivate and inspire future generations of individuals who will treasure the outdoors and protect these natural resources. Engaging more youth, women and others in outdoor experiences connects them to the natural world and fosters an understating of the importance of wildlife conservation. The programs we support:
- introduce and engage youth in outdoor sports, conservation activities and other outdoor sports and conservation activities,
- encourage more women to participate in shooting, fishing, hunting, and other outdoor sports,
- offer hands-on learning opportunities that promote environmental stewardship, and
- build an understanding of the value of wildlife resources within individuals and communities.
