Pennsylvania

Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF Pennsylvania manages land for the betterment of upland wildlife.
NWTF Pennsylvania believes the future of hunting and conservation rests in creating more hunters.
NWTF Pennsylvania understands public access to hunting grounds is critical to the future of our sport.
  • If you enjoy wildlife, wild places and our hunting heritage, you’re in right place and with the right people.
  • NWTF volunteers and partners have an initiative called Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. with three national goals: conserve/enhance 4 million acres of critical upland wildlife habitat, create 1.5 million hunters, and open access to 500,000 new acres for hunting.
  • Join the ranks of thousands of NWTF volunteers — a winning team committed to saving what’s important to them and you. Ask your NWTF representative how.

At the National Wild Turkey Federation, the outdoors isn’t just what’s on the other side of the glass, it’s where we feel most alive. And we’re making America the best it can be for the people and wildlife who call it home. The NWTF has divided the country in six areas — America’s Big Six of Wildlife Conservation — to focus our effort on the most critical upland habitat needs.  

Pennsylvania is part of America’s Colonial Forests. NWTF Pennsylvania is committed to maintain healthy hardwood forests, stop habitat loss, increase habitat diversity and winter wildlife survival.
