The HFWA community believes in collaboration and partnership.  By teaming up with other organizations, agencies, and individuals that share our values, we are best able to mobilize our volunteer base on projects that benefit the lands, waters, and wildlife of Greater Yellowstone.

Volunteer Projects

Henrys Lake Restoration

HFWA volunteers and other partners participated in a collaborative fence building and shoreline restoration project with Henrys Lake Foundation and Bureau of Land Management!

Bear Safe Island Park

This summer, HFWA is partnering with Idaho Fish & Game and Grizzly Wolf and Discovery Center to provide bear resistant trash containers in Island Park for use in specific problem areas. The containers will be used in concert with community education materials to keep humans and bears safe in our area. Stay tuned for more details!

Pronghorn Movement Study

HFWA worked with Idaho Fish and Game, the Idaho Chapter of Safari Club International, and Friends of Camas National Wildlife Refuge on a pronghorn movement study in July 2020. Several volunteers helped in the field. The data collected will help inform mitigation efforts to decrease wildlife mortality and sustain big game populations in Idaho.

And more!

Stay tuned for more information about several other upcoming projects and volunteer opportunities, including swan monitoring in Island Park with Northern Rockies Trumpeter Swan Stewards and a fence removal project in partnership with National Parks Conservation Association and Idaho Fish & Game!
