Partners for Fish and Wildlife

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Partners program is an invaluable resource for landowners who wish to restore and conserve their property for wildlife. Counties, municipalities, and private citizens can partner with the U.S. Fish and WIldlife Service as well as with other Federal and State agencies to help maintain healthy ecosystems in New Jersey. The key principle in these partnerships is cost sharing that is both financial and "in kind." For example, a county might contribute money and some equipment, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation might provide funding, and the New Jersey Field Office might offer labor and technical expertise. Find out more about the Partners program in New Jersey.
