Bass Pro Shops sending teacher to wilderness school program
Placeholder Image
During the month of February visitors to Bass Pro Shops at 1356 Bass Pro Drive in Manteca, will have the opportunity to send their children’s favorite teacher back to school.

All they have to do is stop by one of the store’s checkout counters and pick up a $2 donation card and fill out the nomination form on the back of the card.

A minimum of $1,800 must be raised to send a teacher and any funds collected over that amount will also be donated to the SCI/AWLS school.

One teacher from this area will be selected to attend a special Bass Pro Shops/Safari Club International Foundation’s “American Wilderness Leadership School” to be held July 15 – 22, 2009 in the beautiful Bridger-Teton National Forest near Jackson, Wyoming.

This accredited educational school provides educators with a positive, useful, hands-on experience that they can use in their local classroom to teach our students so they will grow up realizing the importance of the natural world around them.

The course also makes the teacher eligible for continuing education credit or advanced degree credit.
