The SCI Sables are leaders in wildlife education. Sables men and women help to advance the programs that engender a love of the outdoors and respect for nature for preservation of the hunting heritage worldwide.

Learning so much about the wildlife and ecosystem out West and having the opportunity of meeting youth and adults from all over the United States was an awesome experience.

The American Wilderness Leadership School is seven days where you will develop a base knowledge of wildlife ecology and conservation that becomes a central point around which leadership training is provided. You will learn about the roles of leaders in a variety of situations and how to apply leadership skills that can launch you on your journey to become leaders for tomorrow in wildlife management and conservation.

You will participate in shooting sports and a white water raft trip. A major component of the program is an all-day hike and overnight camping trip in the mountains. The hike is an opportunity to apply learned leadership skills and to learn more about wildlife and plants in the area.

Be presently enrolled as a high school student, 16-18 years of age;
Have demonstrated an interest in conservation issues and concerns;
Have satisfactory grades in school;
Have demonstrated an ability to work and communicate effectively with others;
