The first summit of AWCP was held in August of 2000 at the Boone and Crockett National headquarters in Missoula, MT. Campfire Club members Len Vallender, Scott Sutton and Dan Pedrotti (Honorary CFC Member) were in attendance. This landmark meeting resulted in the creation of the American Wildlife Conservation Partners—a coalition of 35 wildlife organizations
Today, AWCP has grown to a consortium of 50 organizations that represent the interests of America’s millions of hunter-conservationists, professional wildlife and natural resource managers, outdoor recreation users, conservation educators, and wildlife scientists. While individual organizations have their own primary areas of interest, collectively we all are dedicated to ensuring the vitality of our wildlife resources and providing for sustainable public use and enjoyment of those resources under the science-based management of the state and federal fish and wildlife agencies, in cooperation with habitat and land management by the federal, state, county, and local governments.
