A Shared Purpose

The Foundation is the non-profit organization formed to work exclusively alongside and provide support for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC). It provides citizens an outlet to show their passion for the outdoors by investing their time and money in projects that will make a difference for generations to come.

A Common Passion

The goal is to look for opportunities where the Foundation can partner with the ODWC to leverage resources, doing more together than could ever be done alone. A few examples of special projects the Foundation is interested in funding are:

  • Stream Rehabilitation
  • Public Land Acquisition
  • Wetland Development
  • Big Game Herd Health Studies
  • Gun Range Development & Renovation
  • Upland Game Bird Habitat Restoration
