Federal Ammunition Presented with ‘Conservation Partner’ Award from Outdoor Stewards of Conservation Foundation
February 26, 2024

Outdoor Stewards of Conservation Foundation (OSCF) is proud to announce that Federal Ammunition has been awarded its “Outdoor Industry Conservation Partner” award for 2024.

Federal Ammunition has a long history of supporting wildlife conservation efforts. From being one of the largest payers of excise taxes on ammunition, to their support of many habitat and conservation focused organizations, Federal Ammunition is a key player in Americas’ conservation funding model.

OSCF Board Member, and Federal Ammunition Brand Ambassador, Julie Golob stated; “In addition to being a primary funder of wildlife conservation, Federal Ammunition is also leading the effort to keep nature clean while promoting positive contributions of their customers. We thank them for sponsoring OSCF’s national ‘Fill A Bag While Filling Your Tag’ program and for encouraging their customers to take trash out of nature while they are participating in hunting, trapping and target shooting.”

OSCF’s “Fill A Bag” program works with industry and wildlife agency partners to distribute reusable, biodegradable bags to thousands of hunters, anglers, trappers and shooters (HATS) across the US. To date, HATS have removed an estimated 10 tons of trash from nature with this program.

Jon Zinnel, Conservation and Youth Shooting Sports Manager for Federal Ammunition notes: “We are proud to partner with Outdoor Stewards of Conservation Foundation on conservation efforts and appreciate this recognition. Federal could not do all we do for conservation without our customers, so we would like to thank them for the important role they play in wildlife conservation.”
