Throughout SDWF’s history, affiliate clubs have promoted youth education, habitat improvement, landowner-sportsmen relations, legislative action, and a host of other conservation-minded activities. SDWF actively supports laws beneficial to our natural resources and to all the citizens and visitors to our state, and opposes laws which unfairly promote the commercialization and privatization of wildlife.
