80th Anniversary Luncheon

80th Anniversary Event Banner


The National Wildlife Federation’s 80th Anniversary Luncheon took place April 14, 2016, celebrating eight decades of conservation achievements and the work of 2016 honorees Lowell E. Baier, Administrator Gina McCarthy, and Martha Darling. View the official program for more details on the event.

We invite you to take a look at our recap of events at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., including event photos, honoree videos, and our 80th Anniversary Luncheon recap blog post.

The National Wildlife Federation owes a heartfelt thank you to our sponsors. Without our sponsors’ support, this event—and all the conservation challenges the National Wildlife Federation works to mitigate—would not be possible.
