The mission of the National Wildlife Federation is to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children's future.
The National Wildlife Federation was born in 1936 to use education and cooperation as a catalyst for uniting groups and their members -- from hunters and anglers to gardeners and outdoor photography buffs -- behind their common love of nature and for directing their shared enthusiasm to the cause of protecting it. Today we are the nation's largest member-supported conservation group with more than four million members and supporters and countless conservation victories. But the key to that success remains the diversity of the many grass roots groups and individuals who come together under the National Wildlife Federation's "big tent" to safeguard the wildlife and wild places that are special to them. We stay connected to these grass roots through our NWF field offices and our network of independent state affiliate organizations across the country. Together they work with other like-minded individuals and groups to build and empower the conservation constituency needed to accomplish real change and bring people and communities into harmony with the natural world.
National Wildlife Federation is a great organization to help out. I am an employee, however I have helped our volunteer team at tabling events, habitat restoration projects and more, and our volunteer team is top notch in organizing the days.
