OSCF Releases Latest “Connecting With Conservation” Highlights Episode

The Outdoor Stewards of Conservation Foundation has released a new highlights episode of its series “Connecting with Conservation.” This series was developed in order to thank industry manufacturers, state wildlife agencies as well as the 60+ million active hunters, anglers, trappers and shooters (HATS) and to acknowledge the significant contributions they make to support wildlife conservation efforts across the country through the Pittman-Robertson Act and the Dingell-Johnson Act.

“Connecting with Conservation” was developed in collaboration with leading outdoor brands and manufacturers including: American Sportfishing Association, Bear Archery, Creedmoor Sports, Hardy with Pure Fishing, Mossberg, Rapala, Rather Outdoors, Remington Ammunition, Savage Arms, SEVIIN, Shimano, Silencer Central, St. Croix Rods, YUM with PRADCO Outdoor Brands and Z-MAN.

The series was also created in partnership with state fish and wildlife agencies including: Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (Mass Wildlife), Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks.

“We’re proud to highlight this series and show the dedication of industry manufacturers to maintain and protect the outdoors and its wildlife,” said OSCF Executive Director Jim Curcuruto. “Conservation efforts like teaching hunter education, building shooting ranges and managing habitat and wildlife populations are possible because of the $3.6 billion that America’s HATS (hunters, anglers, trappers and shooters) contribute each year through their purchase of excised taxed outdoor products and hunting and fishing licenses. We thank this community for the incredible impact it has on American conservation efforts.”

The ‘Connecting with Conservation’ video series is produced with the support of The Murray Road Agency. Funding for this project is provided by the Multistate Conservation Grant Program (F23AP003940), a program supported with funds from the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program and jointly managed by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
