CSF Partners With Community for Clean-Up Project

The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) has joined several partners from the sportsmen’s community to sponsor a volunteer clean-up effort on public land in Arizona. As a popular outdoor recreation destination, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) managed Box Canyon area provides access and opportunity for hunters and shooters in the Phoenix area to practice their craft and zero their rifles in before hunting season begins. However, due to heavy use by the public, Box Canyon requires periodic clean-up in order to maintain the site and ensure future access.

Working with partners including Tread Lightly!, BLM, Safari Club International (SCI), the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the Arizona Game and Fish Department, the National Rifle Association (NRA), and the Public Lands Foundation, CSF is encouraging those interested in volunteering to spend a morning helping to maintain this site that provides recreational access to numerous Arizona sportsmen and women.

Studies conducted at both the state and federal level have found that the number of hunters and trappers have been on a generally declining trend over the past several decades. To increase recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3) of hunters and trappers, which initiative do you think would have the greatest impact?
