We are committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation of our natural resources.
The Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program is designed to assist private landowners in restoring and enhancing wetland, bottomland forest, riparian and grassland habitats for wildlife, fisheries, water quality, and recreation benefits. The staff of Port Louisa National Wildlife Refuge provides technical advice and matching funds to landowners in 10 southeastern Iowa and 3 western Illinois counties. Assistance may be available for restoration projects including wetland water control structures and pipe, or re-establishment of native prairies. Landowners must agree to maintain the area for a period of ten years or more. Please contact the office at 319-523-6982 for assistance.Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program: http://www.fws.gov/midwest/partners/
