Houston Safari Club proudly continues the work of conservation leaders like Theodore Roosevelt and other pioneers who understood the great importance of giving back to the wilderness. Since Roosevelt designated the first United States Wildlife Refuge in 1903, a legislative landmark, wilderness conservation has grown into a global concern. As we move into the 21st century, the protection of our finite natural resources is more important than ever.
HSC is home to one of the largest scholarship programs of its kind. Every year HSC, in conjunction with its charitable arm the American Conservation and Education Society (ACES), proudly awards scholarships to students currently involved in the study of Wildlife Management and/or Range Management. Since the program’s inception in 1999 over 300 scholarships have been awarded to well-deserving students totaling over 1 million dollars.
Additionally, HSC is a steadfast and strong supporter of youth hunting education, and holds weekend events annually for disadvantaged and disabled children. These special and memorable events provide a safe and supportive environment for children to experience the outdoors and to learn about the sport of hunting. Together, the Houston Safari Club and ACES have spent millions of dollars on conservation, education, and sporting rights initiatives worldwide to ensure the longevity of the sport and the sustainability of sporting resources for generations to come.
Every generous donation from our members and network of benefactors not only moves the cause of conservation forward, it introduces a new generation of young people to the sports of hunting and angling, and helps to protect outdoor habitats all over the world.
HSC is reliant upon the generosity of our membership body and supporters, comprised of both businesses and individuals, to enable us to continue our mission. All donations go directly to the conservation and preservation of wild game species, youth education and membership support.
