The Outdoor Heritage Foundation of Alaska (OHFA) promotes the conservation and wise use of Alaska’s natural resources through broad-based education initiatives designed to provide Alaskans the skills and knowledge to enjoy the outdoors in a safe, responsible manner. The provision of which is primarily focused on scientific management of fish and wildlife resources and the habitats they depend upon under the prescriptions of the North American Conservation Model as envisioned by such early conservation leaders as President Theodore Roosevelt.
In addition, the OHFA is dedicated to the education of policymakers and is therefore engaged in granting support to the Legislative Outdoor Heritage Caucus for educational purposes.
The OHFA accomplishes it's goals by partnering with Alaska’s major conservation groups and businesses that support those Alaskan traditions associated with the outdoors. The OHFA’s primary partner is the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and most of our programs are done in a close working relationship with the Department. Other major conservation partners include the following: Alaska Chapter of Safari Club International, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, BP, Bass Pro Shops, Kenai Chapter of Safari Club International, Caelus Energy, Kenai River Sportfishing Association and Shell Oil Company.
