California Waterfowl Association Updated:11/2021

California Waterfowl is an award winning 501(C)(3) nonprofit, hunter-supported conservation organization. We envision a California where wetlands teem with wildlife, waterfowl thrill us with breathtaking abundance and hunters are a respected force for conservation and sustainability. In the last 20+ years, we’ve completed more than 1,240 individual projects to protect, restore, and enhance more than 454,000 acres, providing habitat for millions of birds and animals. Our Wood Duck Program has hatched more than 810,000 ducklings, while our Banding Programs have marked more than 242,000 waterfowl. Our Youth and Education Programs have reached more than 300,000 children and young adults to help to create a better understanding of biology, conservation, and outdoor heritage. All efforts are supported largely by donations and the work of over 1,500 dedicated and tireless volunteers.

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.
