"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is a progress. Working together is a success"
The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in California recently
celebrated enrollment of 100,000 acres into Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP), with
the help of partner organizations that have helped the agency work one-on-one
with landowners to restore their wetlands. These partners include the California
Waterfowl Association, California Department of Fish & Game, U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service, California Audubon, Ducks Unlimited and others.
The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources. Partnerships with the Refuge System bring innovative approaches to solving land management and water disputes in the most environmentally protective manner. Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, waters, wildlife and special places must be collaborative efforts between the Refuge System, other government agencies, and private organizations if conservation efforts are to succeed.
