The YWCE initiative is designed to educate youth on the importance of wildlife conservation and the role of hunters, outfitters, conservation groups and local governments in the sustained use of wildlife around the world.
Due to Covid19 and current school field trip restrictions, HSCF made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Youth Wildlife Conservation Experience. We look forward to seeing you at HSCF’s 2022 Worldwide Hunting Expo and Convention.
HSCF’s Annual Youth Wildlife Conservation Experience (YWCE), as part of our annual Hunting Expo and Convention, introduces area high school students to the many possibilities of the outdoors, whether participating in our sport, as a career or in community service.
Previous topics included the Art of Taxidermy, Wildlife Law Enforcement, Wildlife Biology and Management, Sustainable Hunting: A Conservation Tool, Hunting Opportunities for Texas Youth, and So, You Think you Know Texas Wildlife? Excellent presenters in each of these respective fields have graciously volunteered their time and will discuss how their personal love of the outdoors brought them to their respective fields of endeavor. Students are educated in the areas of community awareness, safe and sportsmanlike use of firearms, hunting ethics, and conservation of the wildlife and its habitat.
HSCF sincerely thanks our YWCE sponsor, MidwayUSA. We are appreciative of their interest in our endeavor and grateful for their support. It is through the collaboration of the hunting and wildlife businesses, organizations and community that will assure that this experience will continue to gain momentum and achieve success.
HSCF members agree that the hunting and fishing life has given us a passion for the sport that extends into wildlife and habitat conservation, hunter education and the desire to pass on our hunting and fishing heritage to the future.
