Over 40 partners have assisted the PFW in accomplishing its goals.
Our partners include twelve different Soil and Water Conservation
Districts, Land Trusts, Local Governments, State Universities and other
educational facilities. Ducks Unlimited is our largest partner, contributing
over $30,000 per year to the program. 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.
