2011-2012 Winter E-news













A 501(c)4 organization, the Western Montana Chapter of SCI has funded numerous education, conservation and humanitarian efforts over the years. These efforts are made possible through the generous support of our members and interested businesses and organizations. 100% of our income is used by SCI with over 70% staying here locally (click here for a listing of projects undertaken by the Western Montana SCI Chapter in the last fiftenn years).

What are we doing today? Through the SCIF Sables, the Western Montana Chapter has placed, and continues to place, Hands-on-Wildlife (formally Safari-in-a-Box) educational tools. What is a Hands-on-Wildlife? It is a hands-on kindergarten through 12th grade educational learning tool for anyone who has a desire to educate others about wildlife and habitat. It gives teachers and others who work with young people resources and ideas to introduce youth to important concepts of habitat, wildlife management, and impacts resulting from human and wildlife interactions. For many, the kit is the gateway to appreciation of the outdoor world and provides their only contact with a wild animal.

Youth Conservation and Education EXPO a Success!
Over 20 organizations have come together over the past three years to host the Youth Conservation and Education EXPO. Held at the Teller Wildlife Refuge, this is a great opportunity for area youth! We'll be participating in and sponsoring the 2016 event as well! The 2016 info. coming soon.

Some of the past events have included -

  • Live Bird Presentation by Raptors of the Rockies

  • FWP Poaching Trailer & FWP Laser Shooting Range

  • Duck, Goose, Turkey & Elk Calling

The Western Montana Chapter also continues to support the SCI Foundation's American Wilderness Leadership Schools by sponsoring local teachers to attend this enriching educational program. The program introduces participants to the complexity of environmental and wildlife management issues, and the shooting sports (rifle, pistol, trap, muzzleloader, and box) with an emphasis on firewrm safety and use. College education units are provided. If you are interested in learning more about Sables, please contact Bonita Smith at 406.589.3948.
