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 start at 8am and some times, we can try to line up a capture earlier in the morning for people to learn about banding. Shoot us a message if you'd like to come out! ... See MoreSee Less

If anyone is interested, here is the map. Take note of the loose group SE of the MT grouping, that is the data which is messed up by the hen being in a dark nest box. Being in a dark setting throws off the locations. But, the location the day prior, and the day following nesting is in the MT cluster. Also note, this is raw data with no cleaning. It will all get better once I take care of that at some point. ... See MoreSee Less
