The PFW program encourages the
restoration and enhancement of fish and wildlife habitat on private lands.
Through this voluntary program the actual costs for specific wildlife habitat
improvement actions are reimbursed directly to the landowner. Cost-sharing
and technical assistance opportunities are provided to non-federal landowners,
including private landowners, local governments, native American tribes,
educational institutions, and other entities. This landowner friendly
program is intended to benefit all federal trust resources, including waterfowl,
other migratory birds, and candidate, threatened, and endangered species.
Previous East Texas PFW projects have involved wildlife habitat
enhancement/restoration activities in wetlands, native prairies, riparian
corridors, and upland longleaf pine habitats, as well as projects to control
invasive, exotic species.
