  • Over 60 partners have assisted the PFW in accomplishing its goals. Our partners include more than twelve different Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Land Trusts, Local Governments, State Universities and other educational facilities. Trout Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited, Ausable River Association, Batten Kill Watershed Alliance and others provide funding, technical support, and monitoring for partners projects. The most important partner is the landowner, without whom this program would not exist.

     

    The amount of interest by private landowners to restore wildlife habitat on their land continues to increase in New York State. There are over 2100 landowners enrolled in the program with at least 50 new contacts each year. The Partners for Fish and Wildlife program continues to expand its restoration capabilities. Fish spawning marshes are being restored on the St. Lawrence River. Invasive species projects such as purple loosestrife removal continue to be a priority for the program. The program will continue to restore wetland, grassland, riparian and other wildlife habitat throughout New York State.
