Our ancestors have entrusted us with the care of a beautiful world with incredible landscapes of grassland, waters, forests and clear skies that abound in fish and wildlife.
We are challenged to nurture the outdoor legacy that has been passed on to us, and pass on a love for the outdoors to our children.
If you are interested in how to get your family started camping, hunting, fishing, or countless other forms of outdoor recreation, we offer educational programs, activities, and resources that are sure to add excitement and fun to your life.
"Serving People, Managing Wildlife" is our mission motto and we do that best when we have a caring and educated citizenry working with us on projects and programs. We face complicated environmental issues today, and our children will carry on the work with those issues in the future. Research continues to highlight the importance of life outdoors as a healthy lifestyle for us and our children. When educators make outdoor and nature lessons part of their materials it has a measurably positive impact not only on student achievement in science but also in reading, math and social studies. Moreover, outdoor activities increases student engagement and interest in science and in all core subjects areas.
