On April 8, 2010, Arlington Ecological Services Field Office approved and signed a Certificate of Inclusion (CI) for the first Lesser Prairie-Chicken Candidate Conservation Agreement with Assurances (CCAA) in Texas.  The CCAA covers 12,260 acres in Gray County, Texas.  Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) worked with the landowner to develop a LPC Wildlife Management Plan (WMP) that describes the landowner's commitment to LPC conservation on his ranch through implementation of conservation practices such as prescribed grazing, prescribed burning, brush management, and LPC monitoring.  The TX LPC CCAA was originally prepared and signed by TPWD and the Service in November 2006 and is intended to promote the conservation and recovery of this unique prairie grouse species in the southern Great Plains.
