Message From Our President

Dear Friends and Fellow NWTF Members,

With Hunting Seasons upon us I would like to Wish you a safe and successful Season and urge you to Consider Introducing Someone to this sport we love so much in the upcoming year as part of our new save the Hunt Goal to create new hunters. 

 I have just returned from the State Chapters President’s Workshop at our National Headquarters in Edgefield, South Carolina. While I was there I attended Meetings around our new initiative Save the Habitat Save the Hunt,  and the unveiling of the plans for the new Outdoor education center and shooting complex in Edgefield SC, with Construction well underway  we toured the site and it will be an Impressive complex all funded by private Donations with no money raised at Banquets being used.

 As part of the Save the Habitat focuses on improving the Habitat on private land I would like to encourage you to take advantage of our spring seed subsidy program and the conservation seed program which provides corn seed a to leave standing to provide winter food for wildlife to help improve the habitat in your area. this is one of the benefits of being a member of the NWTF.I would also encourage you to attend your local Banquet and to get involved with your local chapter to help preserve this sport we love so much.

Good luck this season and safe hunting,

Bill Wilbur

President, NWTF-NY State Chapter

New York Landowners: Receive Assistance to Improve Habitat on Your Land

Private landowners in New York can now take advantage of a program to improve their properties for wildlife.

New York Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announces November 21, 2014 as the application cutoff date for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) for fiscal year 2015. All applications are ranked based on national, state and locally identified resource priorities, and the overall benefit to the environment.

“NRCS provides New York’s agricultural producers with financial and technical assistance to treat the resource concerns on the land,” said Gregory Kist, NRCS state conservationist. “Our programs are as diverse as New York’s agriculture providing exciting opportunities for all of New York’s agricultural producers to work with us.”

The EQIP program provides financial assistance to eligible private landowners for creating high-priority young forest, grassland, and wetland habitats. EQIP also offers financial assistance for practices which address soil erosion, water quality and habitat degradation. 

Though EQIP participants do not have to be NWTF members, the habitat enhancement opportunities available through EQIP address critical habitat components identified in the NWTF-NY Chapter’s Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative plan.

To apply for an NRCS conservation program, visit the NRCS web site at http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/detail/ny/programs/financial/eqip/?cid=nrcs144p2_027058

You also may apply by visiting your local NRCS field office, which can be located at http://offices.sc.egov.usda.gov/locator/app?state=NY
