National Wildlife Federation Alaska Office

The National Wildlife Federation's mission is to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children's future. Founded over 70 years ago by outdoorsmen, it is now considered American's largest conservation organization. The Alaska Youth for Environmental Action is a project of NWF aimed at inspiring and educating youth so they take civic action on Alaskan conservation issues. AYEA was founded in 1998 and has trained many rural and urban Alaskan youth on issues such as global warming, toxics and renewable energy and emission reductions. It has three full-time staff, seven chapters and 75 active volunteers.

National Wildlife Federation was a Brainerd Foundation grantee from 2000 to 2008.
