Mossy Oak is partnering with Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) for the fourth year to provide teachers with instruction in conservation and ecology, Joseph Hosmer, President of Safari Club International Foundation, announced today. Mossy Oak will be sponsoring ten teachers to attend SCI Foundation’s American Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS) program.
AWLS is professional development for educators. The 8-day course teaches methods to incorporate conservation education lessons into existing curriculum content: math, science, language arts, social studies, physical education and art. Teachers learn techniques in using the outdoors as a classroom to give their students hands on learning experiences.
The goal of the program is to educate teachers and students about conservation and to prepare them to return home and share that message with students, classmates, colleagues and friends. The North American Model of Wildlife Management is the core of conservation understanding.
The program is in line with Mossy Oak’s own means of educating the public about conservation wildlife management and the role of hunting. Recently, AWLS was featured on the Mossy Oak GameKeepers show on the Pursuit Channel.
