California Waterfowl Association Updated:07/2014

The California Waterfowl Association is a statewide nonprofit organization whose principal objectives are the preservation, protection, and enhancement of California’s waterfowl resources, wetlands, and associated hunting heritage.

In order to fulfil that mission, CWA has carefully thought out the following goals:

  1. Generate sufficient abundance and dispersion of waterfowl throughout California and the Pacific Flyway.
  2. Protect hunting rights, shooting sports, the use of dogs, and related recreation activities for all Californians.
  3. Expand hunter opportunity, recruit new hunters, and teach skills and behaviors that will help sustain hunting into the future.
  4. Communicate the importance and benefits of hunting.
  5. Increase membership and funding for CWA to increase our capacity to achieve our mission.
  6. Ensure the long-term viability of CWA and plan for its growth.
  7. Maximize volunteer effectiveness.
