At Four Corners SCI we are proud to host one of the largest fundraisers in the area and to give back to the community. A piece of our Mission Statement is “To educate youth, sportsmen, and the public in conservation of our wildlife and our forest, which is our natural heritage.” We’re putting forth more than one effort in this avenue and will be sharing additional works throughout the year. Please find a recap from the San Juan County 4-H Shooting Team. They recently participated in the 4-H National event, a trip for which our Chapter provided support.
