Wetlands Fund

This fund supports managing and restoring wetlands, including acquiring wetlands to ensure access to waterfowl hunting into the future. California Waterfowl does habitat restoration work on public and private land, as well as on its five wetland properties in the Tulare Basin, Suisun Marsh, California Delta and Butte Sink.

California has lost 95% of its historic wetlands; your contribution to this fund helps reverse those losses.

Waterfowl Fund

This fund supports Egg Salvage, California Wood Duck Program, banding and other efforts to grow waterfowl populations through research and direct aid to breeding populations of waterfowl.

Our Egg Salvage and Wood Duck programs directly combat the effects of habitat loss. Banding waterfowl contributes to data that helps monitor the health of California mallard and pintail populations.

Education Fund

This fund supports hunter training and K-12 school programs. Hunters drive conservation in California, so the more hunters we have, the more support there will be for conservation.

Our hunter training programs give people the resources they need to become hunter-conservationists. And our K-12 school programs educate all of California's future leaders about the importance of wetlands through our K-12 school programs.

Advocacy Fund

California Waterfowl has the most comprehensive conservation advocacy program in the state, lobbying not just for policies that help grow waterfowl habitat, but also for hunting and gun laws that don't stifle responsible, sustainable hunting.

Our public policy team works at all levels of government, seeking science-based regulations and bipartisan solutions, and working hand in hand with partner conservation and hunting organizations.
