Conservation Pledge

I give my pledge as an American to save and faithfully to defend from waste the natural resources of my country- it's air, soil, and minerals, its forests, waters, and wildlife.

Our enclosure over the small bore range was thanks to a donation from Dr. James D Coughlan's estate. Dr. Coughlan (a long time member) believed in getting our youth involved in outdoor activities.
