            WHO IS A.H.W.F.?

American Heritage Wildlife Foundation works towards the preservation of all wildlife through rehabilitation and community education.

A.H.W.F. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and an Idaho State nonprofit incorporation. We have wildlife rehabilitation permits from the Department of the Interior U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Migratory Bird Department and the State of Idaho Fish and Game Department. We work closely with nearby recognized Raptor & Ungulate specialists. Our lead animal care volunteer (and co-founder) is a member of the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association, the International Rehabilitation Council, a former member of the American Association of  Zookeepers. Additionally has completed extensive course study in various aspects of wildlife as well as experience from five animal facilities across the nation

      WHAT IS A.H.W.F. ABOUT?

local wildlife, education & community heritage of hunting, fishing, hiking, camping & outdoor recreation.

     WHERE IS A.H.W.F. LOCATED?

Some of the locals say it’s “God’s Country”. We are leasing one certified wildlife habitat acre (with option to buy surroundings). Located on scenic Highway 200, a few minutes from Montana & <2 hrs. from either Washington State or British Columbia Canada.   

      WHEN DID A.H.W.F. BEGIN?

Two zoo keepers sat down one day to discuss their future plans, both wanted to work with native wildlife (aka our native neighbors). In 2001, the process of creating the first non-profit group in the Panhandle of North Idaho with the mission to preserve the wildlife and offer community education began. That mission continues today.

          WHY DOES A.H.W.F. DO IT?

It is not purely altruistic motives for the sake of the wildlife; we want to build the first Inland Pacific Northwest Nature Center. Nature Centers provide jobs, boost economies, offer educational and entertaining experiences & internships.   

HOW DOES A.H.W.F. DO IT?

 Only with help of our community! We do not receive local, state or national government funds. Our financial support comes from contributions from local citizens (both financial and in-kind). We also pursue funding by writing grant proposals. We operate because of dedicated volunteers – over 2,000 hours annually.

 “NATURE IS NOT A MUSEUM, 
IT IS AN ORGANIC SYSTEM, 
AND THE REMOVAL OF ANY LINK 
IN IT’S UNFATHOMABLE CHAIN 
WEAKENS THE WHOLE 
AND IMPOVERISHES US ALL 
IN WAYS WE CANNOT KNOW.”
