West Virginia Field Office
Northeast Region


We are an Ecological Services office located the Mountain State in Elkins, West Virginia.  Our staff is dedicated to conserving and protecting endangered and threatened species, migratory birds, wetlands, streams, and habitats for fish and wildlife species in West Virginia. 

The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.  We strive to work with a variety of entities, agencies, and private landowners to accomplish this mission.

The West Virginia Field Office provides assistance throughout the State of West Virginia to Federal and State agencies, local governments, businesses, private landowners, and the general public relative to conserving, protecting, and restoring habitats for federally threatened and endangered species.  Our assistance is typically provided through three programs: Endangered Species, Conservation Planning Assistance, and Partners for Fish and Wildlife.  In addition, our office provides technical assistance to the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regarding compliance of Section 404 Clean Water Act violations.
