National Wild Turkey Federation
“The Brunswick County Longbeards Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation is committed to making positive change and growing the hunting and conservation heritage in our county, and it would not be possible without support from The Orton Foundation.” – Ellis Bevel, Chairman, Brunswick County Longbeards NWTF
The National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) is the leader in upland wildlife habitat conservation in North America. Founded in 1973 as a national nonprofit organization, the NWTF is headquartered in Edgefield, South Carolina, and has local chapters in every state. The NWTF is dedicated to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage.
Through vital partnerships with state, federal and provincial wildlife agencies, the NWTF and our members have helped restore wild turkey populations throughout North America — from a mere 30,000 in the entire United States to more than 7 million across the United States, Canada and Mexico.
