The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire is the official non-profit partner of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. The foundation raises money and works with wildlife professionals and conservation education partners to fund Fish and Game’s conservation of wildlife and natural places important to New Hampshire’s family traditions such as fishing, hiking, hunting, and watching wildlife.
In recent years, the foundation has supported publication of Wild Times for Kids, improvements at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, the landowner relations program, Discover WILD New Hampshire Day and the National Hunting and Fishing Day Expo. It is also helping to establish an endowment for Barry Conservation Camp, Fish and Game’s residential summer camp in Berlin, NH, where thousands of boys and girls have learned to hunt, fish, camp and appreciate the great outdoors over the past 30 years.
Funding for the Wildlife Heritage Foundation’s grant program comes from individual and corporate donors, and from the annual auctioning of fish and game permits and licenses (check the website in summer for information about the moose hunt auction). The foundation accepts general and targeted cash donations, as well as annuities and endowments; in most cases, contributions are tax-deductible.
