Community Outreach & Conservation Education Conservation Partnerships
Program. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
recognizes the importance of working with partners in the
community through building relationships that will help
conserve fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats.
Our outreach program serves to link the work of the USFWS
to the community and help connect people to nature by providing
opportunities for citizens to take part in protecting our
Connecting People with Nature. Our goal is to get people to go outdoors and experience for themselves the joys of nature. It can be found in the parks, forests, beaches, and mountains of our beautiful region, and it's as nearby as your own neighborhood and your own backyard.
Schoolyard Habitats and Outdoor Classrooms
The Schoolyard Habitat program helps teachers and students create wildlife habitat on school grounds. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides and coordinates with other agencies to give technical assistance and project guidance; provides teacher training; develops written resources; and works with other in the community to incorporate habitat issues into new school construction and renovation projects.
