2nd Annual Conservation Week HSCF

Houston Safari Club Foundation Announces
2nd Annual National Conservation Week

We've partnered with HSCF again to promote an entire week dedicated to educating hunters & anglers on how to get involved and make an impact beyond their dollars.

Calling All Hunters & Anglers: Take Action The Week Of Aug.18

Conservation can and should go beyond buying a hunting or fishing license. And one of the best ways we can all help is with our time.

Houston Safari Club Foundation and GoWild have once again teamed up to promote an entire week dedicated to educating hunters and anglers on how to get involved and make an impact beyond their dollars.

"This week allows us to push beyond our license dollars to encourage folks to get out and enjoy nature while getting our hands dirty for the right reasons.”
“Conservation has a unique definition to each and every hunter and angler,” said Joe Betar, Executive Director of Houston Safari Club Foundation. “Our goal with this week is to get people involved in whatever area they’re passionate about, because together, we can really make an impact overall.”

Houston Safari Club Foundation’s mission is to preserve the sport of hunting through education, conservation and the promotion of hunting heritage. While the group is based in Texas, its reach and impact extends far beyond the Lone Star State. HSCF believes National Conservation Week poses a chance for hunters and anglers nationwide to band together and make an impact.

"What does it mean to be a conservationist?” said Brad Luttrell, Co-Founder, CEO of GoWild. “It means something a little different to each person I talk to, but one thing is clear to me: We should all be pushing beyond our license dollars to earn that title. It's our hope that this week encourages people to think through how they can make an impact.”

Date & Details on How to Get Involved

You can get involved with National Conservation Week, August 18-24th. Your effort could be clearing trails, stream cleanups, planting trees, assisting with animal counts, habitat improvements, or fish sampling. And there are dozens more ways.

The typical scented laundry detergents, which often have UV brighteners can have the opposite effect hunters want making them more visible to animals. That is why it’s important to use a scent free laundry detergent on hunting clothes before the start of the season. Dead Down Wind has laundry detergent and laundry bombs to help make the first step in odor control an easy one. The laundry bombs do not include UV brighteners and contain enzymes that take care of any lingering scent that may expose you in the field.
