Potentially Interested Landowners

HB Road 712x

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service created a Conservation Partnership Area (CPA), an area within which the Service will work with willing sellers or partners to purchase or protect approximately 24,000 acres, which is the planning target for the refuge. Private landowners’ rights are not affected by the CPA or the refuge. The Service will work with willing sellers to acquire lands as opportunities and funding allow. 

Landowners have no obligation to sell their land or otherwise participate in the proposed refuge.


This is a long-term effort that may take decades to complete. The number of willing sellers and availability of funding will determine the timeline for completing the purchase of approximately 24,000 acres for Green River National Wildlife Refuge.

Are you a landowner within the study area who is interested in learning more about fee title or less than fee title land acquisition opportunities? If so, we would like to hear from you! Please fill out this form and/or contact:
