About the National Conservation Achievement Awards

Mayflower banquet

Join the National Wildlife Federation as we celebrate our 80th anniversary in the same historic room where it all began – the Grand Ballroom at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC.  At this historic juncture, we are pleased to recognize esteemed partners who have helped the National Wildlife Federation shape some of today’s most crucial conservation wins.  Like our founder, political cartoonist J.N. “Ding” Darling, these individuals and organizations dedicate their time, talent, passion and resources to wildlife through advocacy, communication, and on-the-ground conservation.  Together, with our trusted partners, we will continue to protect America’s wildlife and wild places through the next 80 years and beyond.  Previous awardees include First Lady Michelle Obama, Ted Roosevelt IV, Disney, and Hollywood actor Robert Redford.
