Founded in 1987, the Nevada Waterfowl Association (NWA) was established by individuals concerned with the rate of deterioration of our wetlands. The NWA’s vision is to restore and enhance Nevada’s wetlands and the wildlife dependent upon them, especially waterfowl and shorebirds.

Dedicated to preserving and restoring wetlands and wildlife habitat within the state necessitates the formation of local chapters to help identify areas at risk and generate support at a local level. Through this process, NWA is successful at identifying projects relevant to our cause and creating solutions that enrich our wetlands. Additionally, NWA works in conjunction with various state and federal agencies to reach these goals.

We encourage you to join us in preserving our heritage and promoting a bright future for our wetlands:

We cannot retrieve and use the data without downloading. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less
