Mary Predovich, Dianne Nagel, and Stephanie MacLennan represented Denver Sables and the Denver SCI Chapter at the 2018 SCI board meeting in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Jackson Hole is home to the American Wilderness Leadership School, where educators are provided with a useful hands-on experience that they can bring home to their classrooms. The new AWLS Cabins were dedicated during the conference. This building project is part of the SCIF Sables strategic plan that sets goals to insure the continued long-term success of AWLS in which it is critical to continue the education of teachers who then pass on to their students the importance of wildlife conservation.
The board meeting offers amazing insight into the critical work that SCI does on behalf of hunters every day and is an inspiration to continue that message of conservation and hunting on grassroots level.
The Denver Sables traded in their shotguns for golf clubs and joined forces with Denver SCI-HOP to raise money to support recreational outreach for Veterans and disabled hunters. The day was a success and was well attended by local veterans and community leaders.
Denver Sables were able to assist Gold Hill School in continuing their development of teaching conservation, understanding environmental needs, the positive role that hunting plays in wildlife education to preserve our hunting heritage, love of outdoors and respect of nature. With our funds to Gold Hill, they were able to go to buy an archery program, they were able to set up an archery course, and purchase needed equipment. They were able to purchase a Buffalo hide to be used in their year-long study of the importance of Buffalo to our history. They were also able to purchase a teepee and other skin rugs for the flooring. The funds helped in many hands-on field trips: Fishing at Walden Ponds, Watershed work at Four Mile Canyon (planting project and collecting invertebrates), week-long Mountain Man Survival Camp, and an end of the year camping trip to Sand Dunes National Park.
Fur the love was fun as always. Who doesn’t like playing dress up?
