SCI’s Michigan Chapters Honored by MUCC As Conservationist Organization of the Year 

Washington, DC – Safari Club International’s (SCI) Michigan Chapters were collectively selected by Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC) as the Conservationist Organization of the Year.  The Conservationist Organization of the Year award is the MUCC’s most prestigious award.

“We are so proud of the Michigan Chapters of SCI,” said SCI President Craig Kauffman.  “It is through collaboration that we improve our outdoor heritage and protect our hunting opportunities nationwide. We thank MUCC for their leadership and we know that SCI’s Michigan Chapters will continue to advocate on behalf of all sportsmen and women for the years to come.”

SCI’s Michigan Chapters worked with the MUCC to support increased conservation funding for the Department of Natural Resources and helped pass legislation to ensure the Mich. Game Commission continues to set game species status across the state. In additional to the relentless advocacy for Michigan hunters’ rights, the chapters have also focused on scientific research within the state. Of particular importance is the Michigan predator-prey study which will be the guiding research for the state’s wolf management program.

For the past seven decades MUCC has pioneered conservation in Michigan.  Founded in 1937, MUCC now represents over 250 outdoor clubs who serve to safeguard the natural resources and outdoor heritage of Michigan.  It is MUCC’s mission to ensure that the great outdoors of Michigan remain great for generations to come.
