NWTF's programs and outreach are essential to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage.
The NWTF’s education and outreach programs are designed to preserve our hunting heritage and ensure Health Habitats and Healthy Harvests.
These programs began with the creation of the JAKES, Women in the Outdoors and Wheelin’ Sportsmen programs, and outreach efforts continue to evolve today. The NWTF has expanded programming to include Mentored Hunts, Field to Fork and Learn to Hunt Clinics to ensure the NWTF’s education and outreach programs collectively make the greatest impact on hunter recruitment, retention and reactivation.
Each year NWTF chapters across the United States offer people opportunities to explore the outdoors through local hands-on events and hunts. Events are designed to pass on the traditions of safe, ethical hunting and teach conservation principals.
"Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the wildlife you hunt and for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person."
While the majority of the NWTF’s programs and outreach revolve around the mission to preserve our hunting heritage, programs also are offered that focus on the conservation of the wild turkey and the overall education on the need for Healthy Habitats for all wildlife species.
Conservation programs may include:
Additionally, the NWTF is committed to offering students, lawyers, judges and additional interested parties the opportunity to learn conservation law concepts.
