What is the NWTF?
The NWTF — a national nonprofit organization — is the leader in upland wildlife habitat conservation in North America. Founded in 1973, the NWTF is headquartered in Edgefield, S.C., and has local chapters in every state. The NWTF is dedicated to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage.
Through vital partnerships with state, federal and provincial wildlife agencies, the NWTF and our members have helped restore wild turkey populations throughout North America — from a mere 30,000 in the entire United States to more than 7 million across the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Conservation Seed - Tentative Arrival
2019 Conservation Seed (Surplus Seed) - Roundup Ready corn has been ordered again by the NWTF-NY State Chapter. The amount ordered was based on requests received from local chapter Presidents across NY State. Due to costs the State Chapter does not order more seed than has been requested.
Seed will likely arrive at the East Concord, Penn Yan, Fulton and Athens sites by early April. Local chapter Presidents will be notified of the seed arrival and any details regarding pick-up options for the site they are scheduled to receive seed from. Local chapter Presidents are to arrange for their chapter’s seed to be picked up. Individual members are not to pick up seed at any of the 4 locations.
Please contact your local chapter President regarding availability. If you missed out this year make sure your local chapter President is aware of your interest for 2020.
