National Wild Turkey Federation investing $215,000 in Missouri projects

The National Wild Turkey Federation in the leading wild turkey conservation organization in North America. It is safe to say that without the efforts of the NWTF, their many US state and Canadian chapters, the many dedicated volunteers and supporters there would be no more wild turkeys left in the wild. It is to no small thanks to these dedicated people that the North American wild turkey rebounded from the brink of extinction to numbers never seen before.

The following press release has been submitted to me by the NWTF.

The Missouri State Chapter of the National Wildlife Turkey Federation (NWTF) committed $215,000 this year to conservation, education, outreach and other projects in Missouri.

The chapter works diligently to conserve the wild turkey and preserve our hunting heritage.

The largest single commitment is more than $46,000 to fund habitat-related projects including equipment purchases, cost chare projects on private land, and contracted projects on state and federal lands.

The chapter allocated $38,400 to preserve our hunting heritage through its JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship), Wheelin' Sportsmen and Women in the Outdoors outreach programs, National Archery in the Schools program, 4-H Shooting Sports, the National FFA Organization and more.
