We seek opportunities to conserve and restore key habitats and ecological functions.
Our voluntary programs for landowners focus on the restoration and conservation of Oregon’s native species and habitats, with an emphasis on recovering federally-listed threatened and endangered species. We work in collaboration with a diversity of partners such as private landowners, municipalities, businesses, government agencies, tribes, and non-profit organizations.
Habitat Conservation Plans,
Safe Harbor Agreements, and Candidate Conservation Agreements are mechanisms under the Endangered Species Act that address the needs of fish, wildlife, and plants through creative partnerships.
River Restoration Science
Stream restoration science expertise and coordination to a wide range of partners, allows the USFWS to positively affect aquatic restoration efforts in a way that maximizes the benefit to federal trust species.
