Welcome Nicole Falkenheiner to the LWF Team!

Nicole Falkenheiner, a Louisiana native with more than 10 years of experience in nonprofit development and fundraising, has joined Louisiana Wildlife Federation (LWF) as the organization’s new development director.

“Nicole is a great addition to the LWF team as we expand our education and advocacy work for wildlife conservation in Louisiana,” said Rebecca Triche, Executive Director of LWF. “Nicole’s unique diversity of experience offers a fresh look at how we serve LWF’s growing membership and engage new supporters in our mission to be the voice of Louisiana’s wildlife and natural resources.”

After graduating from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Arts and Science, Nicole earned a certificate in Nonprofit Management from UCLA.

“I am thankful for the opportunity to advocate for our wildlife and the preservation of Louisiana’s natural beauty,” said Falkenheiner. “Being born in St. Landry Parish and raised in Concordia Parish, I feel that this work is part of my family’s legacy. From the first time I went hunting with my Paw at the age of five, to present-day visits to our family hunting camp with my nephews, I have always had a special love for nature. I believe we are all stewards of our culture and traditions and I am proud that here in Louisiana those traditions are so closely tied to our state’s incredible resources. I cannot wait to dive into the opportunities that await Louisiana Wildlife Federation.”
