Founded in 1936, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF or Federation) is America's largest and most trusted grassroots conservation organization with 52 state/territorial affiliates and more than six million members and supporters, including hunters, anglers, gardeners, birders, hikers, campers, paddlers, and outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes. The Federation’s mission is to unite all Americans to ensure wildlife thrive in our rapidly changing world through programming focused on conserving wildlife, restoring habitats and waterways, expanding outdoor opportunities, connecting children with nature, and addressing the causes and consequences of climate change. NWF’s sportswomen’s initiative, Artemis (, is key to the conservation movement’s future and will play a defining role in NWF’s public lands and sporting conservation portfolios.

Women have economic power, authentic field experience, and fresh perspectives necessary to increase the richness and diversity of the conservation movement.
