Education Sables is dedicated to SCI Foundation Education programs that pass the conservation message to future generations. SCIF Education programs support hunting advocacy efforts. All funds raised by Education Sables are dedicated to SCIF Education programs. Education Sables is dedicated to preserving the beauty of nature, to using animals and their habitats wisely, and to teaching the next generation to hunt, fish live in and enjoy the great outdoors. To learn more about this great organization or to join, visit their website.
Education Sables works closely with the American Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS) located near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This fantastic facility is the perfect place to teach youth and adults about the great outdoors. AWLS conducts seminars for youth and for adult educators throughout the Summer. You can learn more about AWLS and their great programs here.
If you know a youth or an educator who might be interested in attending a week-long seminar at AWLS, please contact our Board. If we get applications early enough (in the Spring) we can apply for a stipend to cover the cost of tuition and our Chapter often offers a stipend to cover travel costs.
Sables Hunting Heritage Scholarships
The SCIF Sables have established five (5) Sables Hunting Heritage Scholarships at major universities to provide merit-based financial assistance for junior and senior wildlife science students.
- The C.J. McElroy scholarship at West Virginia University
- The Joe Leta scholarship at Unity College in Maine
- The SCIF Sables Hunting Heritage Scholarship at Texas A & M University-Kingsville
- The Elaine and Gus Vogeler scholarship at University of Idaho
- Susan and John Monson scholarship at the University of Montana
More scholarships at key universities are in development for this program to encourage the next generation of wildlife managers and scientists.
Education Sables are involved in expanding educational opportunities at the SCI Foundation’s American Wilderness Leadership Schools®. This program introduces teachers and youth group leaders to the complexity of environmental and wildlife management issues, and the shooting sports. The design of the course is for teachers to return to their communities and spread the outdoor message in their curriculum.
Annually, Education Sables seek donations for their popular fundraising Luncheon, Show and Auction at the SCI Convention. This must-attend event offers dazzling Live and Silent Auction items, entertainment and a time to gather together for fun and fundraising for the Sables educational programs.
By focusing their resources on the wildlife and conservation educational programs of SCIF, including the positive role of hunting in our present-day society, Education Sables strive to make a difference by “Continuing Our Outdoor Heritage.”
