AWA is a local grass roots volunteer based not-for-profit organization. It began in Alaska as a duckhunting club in the 1970s when a group of local hunters, friends and sportsmen would get together in pursuit of waterfowl.
They eventually became concerned about the future of the waterfowling sport, wetlands and waterfowl management principles. AWA was formed to ensure the preservation of Alaska’s waterfowl and wetlands so our youth and future generations could enjoy both the waterfowl and duckhunting traditions.
AWA is a motivated group of Waterfowlers from all ages. No matter how old or young you may be, we want you on our team. We are a family oriented association and sincerely believe in the philosophy of involving our youth in the great outdoor heritage.
Belonging to AWA is a great way to meet people who share the same passion in Waterfowling within Alaska. AWA wants to ensure that the future of the Waterfowling sport is carried forward through education, dedication, mentorship and leadership by sharing many techniques and tips with other members while enjoying the great outdoors. Whether you are a novice, expert, guide or interested in learning about the sport of Waterfowling, AWA has something to offer everyone.
If you enjoy spending time with other waterfowlers, passionate about chasing waterfowl, dedicated to the preservation of the waterfowling sport and the conservation of Alaska’s wetlands, then AWA might be for you.
