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:

Nesting season for 2017 is nearing a close. With the ongoing drought we only had 58 nests in 2016. As of now, we have 120 nests and could easily get another 30 by the end of June 2017. How can the number of nests more than double in a single year? Did we shortstop migrant birds due to excellent wood duck habitat conditions, or did we have birds not bother breeding in the drought years finally give it a go this year? Luckily we should be able to answer this question with the intense banding data from recapturing birds with bands and the recoveries reported by hunters! ... See MoreSee Less
