Over 30 years of conservation success
Thanks to the dedicated efforts of more 500 volunteers and the financial support of more 4,500 SCWA members and sponsors, the SCWA has completed the following conservation achievements since 1986:
- Distribution and installation of 22,300 wood duck nest boxes resulting in the production of more than 950,000 wood ducks.
- Creation of the 390-acre SCWA Wildlife Education Center (WEC), the home of SCWA’s Camp Woodie, the Nation’s leading youth wildlife education summer camp. The WEC is also the home of Camp Leopold, SCWA’s new school year natural resource conservation camp for 3rd – 7th grade students. This year, more than 850 youth will attend Camp Woodie and more than 3,000 youth will attend Camp Leopold. Since 1986, conservation education has been provided to more than 78,000 youth.
- Wetland management assistance to 600 landowners resulting in the creation and enhancement of thousands of acres of managed wetlands.
- Production of more than 155,000 songbirds.
- Successful release of 840,000 mallards.
- The addition of 75 to 100 thousand waterfowl to South Carolina’s waterfowl population on an annual basis.
