Erie County Federation Community Programs
Erie County Federation of Sportamen’s Clubs awards up to five $200 college scholarships yearly.
This event allows attendees to participate in a variety of events including fishing, trap, small bore rifle shooting, air guns and archery.
Active in our Community
The best way to teach children how to conserve is to start young. Education and empowerment are the gifts we must give our children and the tools they will use to make the world a better place for generations to come.
The Erie County Federation of Sportsmen‛s Clubs sponsors youth programs designed to teach conservation and how to respect and preserve our natural resources.
The Council’s members are a dedicated group of volunteers who donate their time and resources to advocate for their fellow sportsmen and women, tracking bills affecting the sporting community, and following issues like land use throughout New York State. As new concerns arise, the NYSCC is a consistent voice for conservation and wise land use in the hearing rooms of the NYS Legislature.
Fish & Wildlife Management Board
The State FWMB meets biannually to consider issues submitted by Regional Boards, advisory members and others that pertain to fish and wildlife management in the state. Over the years, the role of the State FWMB has become that of a citizen forum for examination of such issues, with a particular slant toward the viewpoint of the private landowner. The power of the Board consists solely of the advocacy of its resolutions.
We support many conservation groups – from Fishing with Heroes helping disabled vets gain access to sport fishing, to West Falls youth archery camp where camp attendees get hands-on training and earn a NYS Bowhunter Certification.
Youth trappers are trained by experienced mentors. We sponsor NYS High School Clay Target League teams in Erie County.
