Become an Affiliate

of the Louisiana Wildlife Federation

The organizational structure of the Louisiana Wildlife Federation is based on its network of affiliates. The affiliates, through their representatives on the LWF's Board of Directors and delegates to the Annual Meeting, guide the development of the LWF's programs and its policies and positions on conservation matters.

Any Louisiana organization that has a primary interest in the conservation of the renewable natural resources of the state and the quality of the environment, and subscribes to the basic purposes of the LWF "To restore, preserve, develop, and increase the birds, fish, game, forestry, wild flowers and all other wild life resources of the state....." as stated in the LWF Charter, may apply for affiliation.

The reasons for affiliation include: to become more knowledgeable, effective and influential in conservation matters; to meet and interact with other conservationists from throughout the state to secure support for the affiliate's goals; to take advantage of the LWF's communication network to inform a larger audience of the work and interests of the affiliate and to recruit new affiliate members.
