What does a $100 contribution do for this organization?
This contribution enables us to provide several groups or schools with the materials and resources they need to start creating backyard and schoolyard habitat sites in their communities.
Why does this donor support this organization?
"I give to NWF because they have a reputation of integrity and take a very positive approach to conservation. Not only does it give me hope for the future, but I know my money will be used carefully and effectively." -Patty Abbate
How do volunteers make a difference for this organization?
Volunteers are the foundation of NWF's strength as a grassroots organization. Backyard wildlife enthusiasts reach out in their communities about creating places for wildlife through sustainable gardening practices. Our conservation volunteers advocate for wildlife by writing their legislators, lobbying, writing letters to the editor, and taking actions through our EnviroAction newsletter. And of course, volunteers help us every day with special events, mailings, and a million other things!

Founded in 1936 as a nationwide federation of conservation groups, National Wildlife Federation (NWF) continues to be the country’s leading grassroots conservation organization. NWF’s Pacific Regional Center is proud that Oregon is part of the region (which also includes Washington, California and Hawai'i) we are working to protect for our children's future.

We represent the organization's vast network of over 523,000 members and supporters in Washington, Oregon, California and Hawai'i. Our three conservation priorities — confronting global warming, safeguarding wildlife, and connecting people with nature — aim to protect wildlife and wild places for generations to come.

Major Programs - Safeguarding Wildlife

State Wildlife Action Plans
Several states, including Washington, have already created and are beginning to implement these plans, which serve as blueprints for conserving critical wildlife species and habitats.

Protecting Bristol Bay
This pristine wilderness, containing the world's largest run of wild salmon, is at risk from mining that would scar one of America's most spectacular places. Learn more.

Protecting Floodplain Habitat
We are working to end destructive floodplain development and to increase protection of floodplain areas to safeguard wildlife, reduce flooding, and enhance public safety. Learn more.
