The National Capital Chapter of SCI has been very supportive of educating teachers and youth about the
benefits of hunting and conservation.
NCC has sponsored 36 Hands on Wildlife kits and purchased additional specimens from the Minnesota
Trappers Association to supplement other educational projects. In addition, they have sponsored over
10 teachers to go to AWLS, and each teacher received their own HOW kit.
Most recently, at Harper Park Middle School, where Sables Rep Beth Robinson is the Principal, the 7th
grade students used the school’s HOW kit on the first day of school with an activity called “Who Done
IT”. This has been an annual tradition for the 7th grade Science Team. They believe that students
should begin school, even on Day One with a fun educational experience where the students have to
What can your chapter do?
-Reach out to your children’s science teachers – the HOW kits align with most Life Sciences Curriculum.
-Investigate partnerships with your state’s Department of Game and Inland Fisheries office to see if they
have any youth outreach programs. They would love a HOW kit.
-Reach out to Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Game Associations and 4H to see if they would like a HOW kit.
-Sponsor teachers to attend AWLS. Teachers don’t make a lot of money. If your chapter can cover the
expense of the tuition and travel, you have more likelihood of getting attendees. Further, if they can go
with a friend or colleague, they are even more apt to attend.
-Continue to build relationships with teachers, conservation agencies, game wardens etc… and ask them
how you can help. Often times it is through our SCI connections and resources that we can help them
with their education and conservation projects.
