HSCF Youth Program Volunteers Needed

The HSCF Youth Program is in immediate need of volunteers dedicated to preserving the future of hunting.  Every year, young people who meet the HSCF youth program criteria, are nominated to participate in our program by adult representatives.  One of our most successful annual youth outdoor programs introduces several Houston area girls & boys, from local schools and groups, to hunting, fishing and wilderness conservation.   The hunting groups are small by design, consisting of four to six young people and their adult guides. Limited numbers allow for more thorough hunter or outdoor education instruction. Young hunters learn about various conservation efforts by hunting on sponsor ranches that must harvest an abundance of animals to maintain their specific wildlife management program. Many different youth hunting, fishing and outdoor experiences are sponsored by HSCF.   Also, each year we host 150 area high school students for our Youth Wildlife Conservation Experience
