Concerned sportsmen and naturalists, led by renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, founded AWF on July 21, 1914 to apply conservation principles to the management of game species and to set aside public lands for wildlife and outdoor recreation. In its 100-year history, AWF has been at the forefront of wildlife and wild lands advocacy in New Mexico, working for sound hunting practices, wilderness protection, and ecological restoration.

WHO: AWF is an all-volunteer organization with members statewide that is focused on protecting and restoring natural habitat and resources for current and future generations. The group hosts monthly educational presentations and regular ecological restoration service projects in which volunteers work with land management agencies and restoration experts to improve wildlife habitat.
