Wildlife and conservation enthusiasts,
The Utah Chukar & Wildlife Foundation (UCWF) was created in February of 2004. The UCWF is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on improving chukar and other upland game populations, habitat, and hunting on Utah's public lands.
The UCWF is an active participant in wildlife legislature, Utah's upland game laws, the Utah Upland Advisory Council, volunteer projects, fund raising, guzzler and water development, wildlife education, habitat improvement, and more.
We are making a difference and with sustained support we will continue to make a difference for upland game in Utah. Become a member today!
It was good to see many devoted persons attend our banquet this year. Thanks for uniting to support upland game in Utah! Many volunteer hours and donations by members of this foundation and supporting companies enable us to make a difference! We raised over $16K which will be used with matching funds and volunteer labor to get the largest bang for your buck.
Some quality upland projects we have supported this year include:
Box Elder 10 guzzler project
Sage grouse initiative biologists
17 Guzzler UDWR, BLM, UCWF partnership guzzler project in the central region
Chukar transplant and survivability studySharp-tailed grouse lek surveys (with bird dogs)
Sage grouse population surveys (with bird dogs)
Youth Outdoor Adventure Days
Farmington Bay Youth Fair
It was amazing to see the UDWR work some minor miracles to help pull off an amazing guzzler project with the BLM. We are very excited and plan on expanding this project in future years. Thanks much to the UDWR and BLM for really coming through to support this great upland project!The UCWF pledges to make sure your voice is heard and ensure that monies dedicated to Utah’s upland game are used in the best possible way. My deepest thanks to the UCWF board, members, donors and volunteers who do so much to make good things happen for Utah’s upland game! Please support our donors first!
For the past 10 years, we have been holding our annual banquet and fundraiser at the Doubletree Hilton by the airport. It has been a great location and we have enjoyed working with their staff to provide a quality dinner and fundraising experience. We generally clear a little over $15,000 a year at the banquet because of our dedicated members and our great sponsors.
Each year we discuss what can be done to improve our banquet and provide for a better experience for those who attend. Our biggest issue each year is the limitation on space we currently have at the Doubletree Hotel location by the Airport. In recent years, we have sold out the banquet and have to turn people away. We are also aware that the price of the banquet might prohibit some of our members from attending and enjoying this event. Because of this, we would like to hear your thoughts and opinions on what we could do as an organization to make the banquet and fundraiser better.
Please take some time and complete the survey so that we can get a better feel for what the members of the organization want. You can complete the survey on-line by going to the following website: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/UCWFBanquet
