Iowa Wildlife Federation
Des Moines
712-355-3240
Mission:
A statewide, membership-based non-profit organization; we recognize the importance of wild places and how they enhance our lives. We might enjoy them through hunting, fishing, wildlife watching or just exploring under rocks in a stream.
Even members who don’t get outside much recognize that Iowa’s grasslands, wetlands and woodlands clean our water, improve our air quality and create a natural world that sometimes ‘patches up’ the human induced ‘progress’ which blesses and curses us today.
IWF is education; revealing more about that natural world which drives many of us active. You may not want to help canvass wildlife blocks for the soon to be published Iowa Breeding Bird Atlas ‘2’…but you can learn what an indigo bunting looks like.
You may not disappear in the woods each fall to scout for and hunt trophy whitetails, but you will understand that hunting and fishing provide tens of millions of dollars in excise taxes and fees from those outdoor Iowans to directly enhance and preserve our wild populations and places….not to mention the thousands of Iowa jobs they create.
