John Garcia Youth & Wildlife Foundation Partners
The John Garcia Youth & Wildlife Foundation helps connect urban kids with wildlife through donations and contributions from our partner organizations. Garcia’s Hunting Preserves, owned and operated by Jim Garcia, the late John Garcia’s father, might be called the founding partner. McClellan Park provides shop space for the Foundation’s habitat restoration programs. Lock, Stock & Barrel Appraisals specializes in appraising firearms, antique edged weapons, military memorabilia and related collectibles in northern California for more than three decades. The Sacramento and Bay Area chapters of Safari Club International have raised more than $1 million to fund conservation and habitat projects throughout the state, including education programs. West Coast Falconry brings birds of prey right into the classroom, where students have never seen one up close. The Roseville Police Activities League works with BigM Fishery, a recreational fish park that provides kids and families an opportunity to fish in a safe, controlled environment. Gateway Community Charters is a nonprofit public charter schools organization that operates five schools in the Sacramento area, and hundreds of children attending these schools have been introduced to the outdoors with help from the John Garcia Youth & Wilderness Foundation.
