Supports Local Programs

Donations

 

The Barry Conservation Camp: The Chapter adopted the Bobcat Liar cabin at the camp, providing some much needed repair and replacement of electrical fixtures, roof, and screens. We've also won an educational grant from SCIF for $5,000. This money will be used to purchase canoes, life jackets, and other camp essentials for future campers. Details of the program are available on their website.

Operation Land Share: The NH Chapter of SCI supports NH Fish and Game’s Operation Land Share resulting in opening thousands of acres of private land to ethical hunters.

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation: Our Chapter has provided $2,500 to support to the N.H. Fish and Game Department (NHFGD) authorized by RSA 206:33-d, through acceptance of gifts, bequests, donations, grants; promoting public awareness of fish and wildlife conservation and encouraging the protection of fish and wildlife habitats, and; encouraging New Hampshire residents and visitors to support the programs of the NHFGD. We received $1000 in matching funds from SCIF. Details are available on their website.

Bear Conservation Project: Our Chapter has provided $2,500 to fund a program coordinated by New Hampshire Fish & Game, University of New Hampshire, and USDA-APHIS to study nuisance bears that are common in many New Hampshire communities where hunting is not a viable management option. We received $1000 in matching funds from SCIF.
