Welcome to the Inland
Northwest Wildlife Council
Leaders in volunteer
conservation for over 50 years
The Inland Northwest
Wildlife Council began in 1951 as the Inland Empire Big Game Council. A
group of outdoor families, who, having enjoyed the outdoors and
wildlife for so many years, decided it was time to give something back.
With that, an enduring philosophy of volunteer commitment to
conservation, education, ethics and safety was born.
That small group has grown to 500 plus families with membership all
across Washington State. Well recognized and respected for their
leadership and unwavering volunteer spirit - the INWC now commits
nearly 20,000 hours of volunteer time annually and thousands of dollars
to worthwhile projects.
With the growth and
success of The Big Horn Show, the Council was able to construct and
occupy their own facility in 1996. Not only our clubhouse, the Council
Center is the focal point and home for numerous other non-profit
outdoor groups and a regional meeting place for all things outdoors.
The Center also serves as a busy weekend rental for various parties,
weddings and other private functions.
Currently the INWC has
a full time staff of two and is involved with discussions, projects and
planning statewide. Our reputation as a reasonable voice for sports men
and women and commitment to natural resources is unmatched. We gather
monthly for General Membership and Trustee meetings and schedule many
work projects throughout the year. Join us at the Center the first
Tuesday of every month, except July - we are confident you
will find an
of interest to become involved.
