The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources. Partnerships bring innovative approaches to solving land management and water issues in the most environmentally protective manner. Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, waters, wildlife and special places should be a collaborative effort between the Refuge System, other government agencies, and private organizations to make sure conservation efforts succeed.
The Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex works closely with many different federal, state and local partners to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
