Gallatin Wildlife Association is open to membership by wildlife advocates and sportsmen/women. Our members include hunters and non-hunters, but we are all united by our passion for wildlife, our committment to habitat, and the assuring that public lands are used to support public wildllife.

The Gallatin Wildlife Association works to promote the restoration, maintenance and perpetuation of native fish, wildlife and their habitat. Gallatin Wildlife Association (GWA) is a non-profit volunteer wildlife conservation organization (1976-2012 non-profit 501c(3) corporation) representing hunters and anglers in Southwest Montana and elsewhere. Our mission is simply to protect habitat and conserve all native fish and wildlife. GWA supports sustainable management of fish and wildlife populations through fair chase public hunting and fishing opportunities that will ensure these traditions are passed on for future generations to enjoy.

What your donations provide

  • Office expenses such a website maintenance & hosting, mailings, copying, etc.
  • Travel - much of our advocacy work for wildlife involves driving. We often travel to Montana's capital, Helena, to meet with agency officials, and to testify at the legislature on behalf of wildlife. We also travel to the Yellowstone Park area to work on bison issues. We attend meetings and events sponsored by other wildlife advocacy groups in Montana. All travel is done in member's personal vehicles, and when we have funding available we compensate our members for fuel expenses.
  • Legal fees - although we do not get involved routinely in litigation, unfortunately it may be the last resort for resolution of critical wildlife issues.

Thank you for contributing to the Gallatin Wildlife Association,
helping to preserve and protect the wildlife, for future generations.
