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 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.

Involving More Women in Outdoor Sports

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman, a California Waterfowl Association program, encourages more women to enter the world of outdoor sports by introducing participants to a wide variety of outdoor skills.

Engaging Youth in the Out-of-Doors

Kids Outdoor Sports Camp exposes youth to a variety of outdoor activities including archery, fishing and hands-on conservation projects.

Educating Schoolchildren about Environmental Conservation

The outdoor education programs of iThemba Trust teach impoverished youth from rural South Africa to connect with, enjoy and appreciate the natural environment through fun outdoor experiences.

Educating our Educators

California teachers learn how to bring outdoor education into the classroom during four-day Wildlife Conservation Science Education Seminars hosted by California Waterfowl Association.

“Thank you so much for donating money to KOSC so people like me can get scholarships. I had such a great time doing 3D archery and I can’t wait to use my skills out in the field.”
