Remington Outdoor Foundation and National Forest Foundation are hosting the 16th Annual Sporting Clays Invitational May 7-8 to help raise funds for the National Forest System.

“Remington Outdoor Foundation’s sponsorship of this prestigious sporting clays shoot allows us to contribute to the National Forest Foundation’s efforts to restore and enhance America’s 193 million acres of national forests and grasslands,” said Jim Moore, president of Remington Outdoor Foundation. “Remington Outdoor Foundation works with partners such as the National Forest Foundation to promote our mission of habitat management, wildlife conservation, hunting, target shooting, and training and safety.”

On May 7, a live auction will be held at GlenArbor Golf Club in Bedford Hills, N.Y., where participants can bid on items ranging from a Wyoming fly-fishing adventure and a bird hunt with Tom Brokaw to high end Remington shotguns and rifles. Guests also will be treated to presentations by esteemed wildlife experts Jim Fowler and Marcella Leone at this important conservation fund raiser.

Guests will uncase their shotguns for a friendly sporting clays team shoot at Pawling Mountain Club in Pawling, N.Y., Saturday, May 8. The Betteridge Rolex Challenge, a silent auction, gourmet lunch and team awards presentation will round out the day.

“The National Forest Foundation’s conservation successes are all founded on collaboration and partnerships. In the Remington Outdoor Foundation we have found a partner dedicated to helping us restore and improve thousands of acres across our National Forests, benefiting many of the iconic species that depend on these wild places for habitat,” said Bill Possiel, president of the National Forest Foundation.
