Help Further Conservation: Become a CLfT Facility

Each one of our Facilities serves an integral role in the success of our program. Each Facility provides the venue for which CLfT can promote conservation and educate participants on the roles and values of hunting. If you are interested in partnering with CLfT, please contact Zach Lowe, CLfT Director, at zach@clft.org.

CLfT facilities may involve a summer training and orientation session (2 days) for regional instructors. This corresponds with a workshop (4.5 days) in the fall or winter, which includes 30-32 people. Once on site, most CLfT activities are self-sustaining; we bring the majority of our equipment and materials with us. The following provides an accurate assessment of what basic resources are required for each event at a CLfT host facility:

Event I: CLfT Instructor Training and Orientation Session (summer: May-August)
Dinning* and lodging** for 10-12 instructors for a period of 48 hours over 3 days (½ day, full day, ½ day).
Additional event needs:

  • Classroom space for 12-16
  • Access and use of the clay target range for half a day.
    • Event II: CLfT Workshop (fall/winter: September-March)
      Dinning* and lodging** for 30-35 people comprised of 16-20 participants, 10-14 instructors, and occasionally an assistant or observer may attend. Program administrators and instructors may arrive a day earlier, to set up the field exercises and classroom. For student workshops, participants arrive by late afternoon on Friday - all depart by noon on Tuesday. At the Agency workshops, participants arrive by Monday afternoon and depart by Friday afternoon.
      Additional event needs:

      • Classroom space for 30-35.
      • Short (1-1.5 hour) afternoon tour of the facility for participant's perspective, if facility desires.
      • Access and use of the clay target range or open field to set up a range and additional outdoor spaces for field exercises.
      • Use of hunting fields, guides/dogs, and game cleaning station.
      • Access to a fire pit, if available.
      • * CLfT can cater in meals from a local source if necessary.
        ** Multiple room occupancy; students may “camp” on the floor in sleeping bags, bed rolls, and on spare mattresses as needed although not desired.
