Your Conservation Project Could Win $25,000

29

Are you passionate about conserving wildlife, enhancing habitat, educating youth and recruiting new hunters? Do you have a project in mind that, with funds behind it, would accomplish one or more of these things? If so, SportDog Brand is calling on you to submit your application and ideas for projects that will promote conservation and hunter education. The winning project will receive a $25,000 grant from the SportDOG Brand Conservation Fund.

“Successful applicants will use these grants to help fund projects dedicated to habitat enhancement, game conservation, training education and/or youth education and involvement. It is through such projects that we help ensure sportsmen can continue to enjoy outdoor opportunities for generations to come.”

A committee will choose the top seven projects, and then voting will be open to the public on Sept. 1, 2013.
