About HCCRA

The Hoosier Creek Conservation and Retriever Association (HCCRA) was formed in 2017 through a union of two long-standing eastern Iowa conservation groups: Eastern Iowa Hunting Retriever Association (EIHRA) and Hoosier Bay Delta Waterfowl. By blending these two nonprofits, we support Iowa hunters as they develop better retrievers for upland and waterfowl hunting while finding ways to conserve local waterfowl and secure waterfowl hunting in eastern Iowa for current and future generations.

 

By keeping the organization independent and local, we ensure that 100% of the funds we raise are used for local wetland/habitat improvement projects. 

"Dating back to Teddy Roosevelt, hunters have been the pillar of conservation in America, doing more than anyone to conserve wildlife and its habitat." 

--Gale Norton, 48th United States Secretary of the Interior
