Outdoor Stewards of Conservation Foundations (OSCF) was established as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2021. Through all the turmoil of the pandemic, one bright spot shined greater than any other, which was having millions of Americans connect, or re-connect, with nature, the environment, and outdoor activities of hunting, angling and target shooting like never before. OSCF is dedicated to working with Americas’ 60 million HATS™ (Hunters, Anglers, Trappers and Shooters) to promote their stewardship and expand their ranks in an effort to continue the tradition of HATS being Americas’ foremost stewards, and funders, of wildlife and environmental conservation in America.
Outdoor Stewards of Conservation Foundation’s (OSCF) mission is to work with all facets of the outdoor industry to improve cultural acceptance of hunting, fishing, trapping and target shooting. We use research-based communications and engagement programs to recruit the next generation of HATS™ (Hunters, Anglers, Trappers and Shooters), and promote the fact that HATS™ are primary funders and stewards of land, fish and wildlife conservation in America
