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:

ATTENTION!

I have 8 "Early Bird" tickets left for the Fallon Chapter of the Nevada Waterfowl Dinner on November 3rd. With the purchase of a $60 ticket you will get $60 in raffle tickets. Frontier Liquor also has only a few left too! After these are gone it will still be $60 for a raffle ticket but you will still have a great time including great food, drinks and prizes! Hats off to the Atlantis Casino in Reno for their room donation. Contact me at 775-427-6220 for tickets, donations, questions etc! Don't wait....we sold out last year!

A clip from NDOW about the botulism event at Carson Lake.

Nevada Department of Wildlife
Today we're taking a closer look at efforts to fight a botulism outbreak in the Carson Lake Wetlands. This strain of botulism can be fatal in birds, but is not harmful to humans. NDOW, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Pacific Southwest Region, volunteers and numerous rehabilitators are working to rehabilitate diseased birds and keep the area clear from future contamintaions. Efforts have proven to be successful for many ducks and shorebirds, which have been safely released back into the Carson Lake Wetlands. We still need volunteers.

A total of 13 wood duck nests were found, which is the largest number of nests ever found on the first week. Hope that means it could be a banner year! We'll be doing this every Saturday through the end of nesting in late June. ... See MoreSee Less
