The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) during the organization’s conservation forum and tour in Williamsburg, Va and I talked with Comm. Director Stephanie Addison.

The MOU between NACD and NWTF establishes an agreement to enhance the productivity of wild turkey and other wildlife habitats on private lands. Additionally, the agreement signifies the commitment both organizations share to collaborate on future engagements and events. Activities include wild turkey and habitat conservation projects, delivering education materials, habitat restoration, and developing habitat enhancement techniques.

“You can’t have a healthy turkey population without healthy forests,” NACD President Brent Van Dyke said. “Today's signed agreement demonstrates the commitment both NACD and NWTF share in enhancing our natural resources, particularly through increasing forest health. This agreenment provides both entities with the unique ability to promote and implement conservation practices at the local level.”

“NWTF is well-respected partner with a network of a quarter-million members, many of whom are also members of NACD,” NACD Second Vice President Michael Crowder said. “This collaboration between our organizations solidifies the work we’ve already begun to accomplish in getting conservation on the ground. This relationship is important, and we’re excited about the opportunity to revive the agreement both organizations committed to over ten years ago.”
