North Carolina Partners

"North Carolina Partners" is a cooperative program between:

USDA, Natural Resources Conservation Severice North Carolina Resource Commission Ducks Unlimited U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service


Working together, these four agencies/organizations help private landowners develop wetland habitats on their property. By providing technical assistance and cost share funds, we support projects that will provide habitat for waterfowl, shorebirds, wading birds and other wildlife.

If you are a private landowner in North Carolina and are interested in wetland restoration and management on your property, give us a call at 252-796-2401 or e-mail kendall_smith@fws.gov to discuss how this program may be able to help. For additional information and details about the program, take a look at the NC Partners factsheet.
