The Lexington Wildlife Chapter is the last remaining county chapter of the South Carolina Wildlife Federation. Over the years, the Chapter has helped restore fish & game populations in South Carolina through land and water conservation law changes petitioned to state government. It has helped restore Wood Duck and other waterfowl populations through nesting box recovery programs, and has provided hands-on community service to Lexington through Adopt-a-Highway and Adopt-a-Waterway programs.
The Lexington Wildlife Chapter is a conservation outreach partner for terminally ill patients of the Department of Veteran Affairs at the Dorn VA Hospital and for underprivileged children's homes. By holding special programs for these veterans and children, teaching them how to fish and enjoy the beauty and wonder of the outdoors, it has provided many individuals with experiences unavailable through other outlets. Additionally, conservation programs and outings have been held by LWC for the Boy Scouts and Lexington County Public Schools. A number of the members have become Certified Fishing Instructors and help DNR by conducting public fishing clinics at the Chapter’s facilities.
