CALWOF exists to provide financial and civilian support to the brave California Wildlife Officers and their families.
What We Do
Protecting the diverse wildlife of our great state can be both challenging and costly. We provide financial assistance in the form of grants, helping to bolster, prepare, and care for the brave service people who risk everything for our state’s natural resources.
Making sure our officers are educated in a variety of ways is paramount, which is why we’re committed to making higher education affordable. We help Wildlife Officers and their families with college finances and the costs of various educational programs in order to arm them with all manner of knowledge and training.
Training and Safety Support
We’re here to make sure CA Wildlife Officers get what they need to serve our state well. Foundation funds may assist Wildlife Officers in securing resources that are otherwise unavailable in their annual state budget, giving them the tools they need for continued analysis and dynamic research.
Beyond providing financial assistance and educational resources we also exist to further public knowledge about the vital services Wildlife Officers perform. Part of our mission is to teach the citizens of our state about what these brave Officers do, and how all of us can help make sure that they’re taken care of.
CalWOF was officially incorporated in February 2007 by a visionary group of Californians. Their goal was to create an organization that could unite varied interest groups, from outdoorsmen and women to environmental organizations and the public at large, in order to work towards helping support Wildlife Officers in every way possible. We are an organization for all who appreciate the beauty of California’s wildlife and who wish to support those protecting it.
