What is Waterfowl U.S.A.?
In January 1983, a group of conservationists, who were concerned about the dwindling waterfowl populations in America, formed the National Waterfowl Alliance, Waterfowl U.S.A. Limited as a national, non-profit, conservation organization. Since that time, the organization has become known simply as Waterfowl USA. Waterfowl U.S.A. is the only national, non-profit, conservation organization, dedicated to using funds in the areas in which they are raised for local and state waterfowl projects.
It was founded by biologists for the purpose of preserving and improving wintering and breeding habitat within the United States. There was, and still is, a tremendous need to fund waterfowl projects on the local level. Therefore, local and state fund-raising chapters are being organized to lead the way in restoring waterfowl enjoyment. Waterfowl U.S.A. was incorporated in Edgefield, South Carolina in January 1983 as a fully tax deductible, non-profit organization and approved under IRS statute 501 (C)(3). Since its founding, over 45,000 conservationists from all 50 states and many foreign countries have joined and supported Waterfowl U.S.A.
