NWTF BANQUET, DINNER & AUCTION
Since its foundation in 1973, the NWTF has achieved some amazing accomplishments. With the help of its dedicated volunteers and partners, the NWTF has been able to facilitate the investment of $412 million dollars in conservation and the preservation of our hunting heritage. These investments have helped improve more than 17 million acres of wildlife habitat and expose 100,000 people to the outdoor each year.
The NWTF is dedicated to having the same significant impact over the next 40 years as it did over its first 40. That is why the NWTF has created the Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative.
The NWTF started the JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship) program as a way to give youth 12 years old and younger the chance to explore the outdoors through hundreds of fun, kids-only events called Porter Wagoner JAKES Conservation Field Days. JAKES members also receive a subscription toJAKES Magazine.
The Women in the Outdoors program is home to a growing number of outdoor enthusiasts who take part in events hosted throughout the United States and Canada. Events are taught by expert instructors and a variety of classes are offered including fishing, hunting, outdoor cooking, crafts and so much more! Opportunities for beginner and advanced classes are available. Don’t you think it’s time to try something different? Women in the Outdoors members also receive a subscription to Turkey Country magazine.
The NWTF believes education is the key to cultivating future stewards and support for the conservation of the wild turkey, our natural resources and the outdoor heritage we treasure. NWTF education resources, scholarships and museum programs are designed to educate and empower students of all ages while also equipping educators with the tools to teach conservation principles through the greatest wildlife conservation success story of all time – the return of the wild turkey!
