USDA’s Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) program recently received new resources in its efforts to improve wildlife habitat through conservation of working farmlands. The expansion includes close alignment of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Farm Service Agency (FSA), centered around WLFW Frameworks for Conservation Action.

USDA Farm Production and Conservation Under Secretary Robert Bonnie discusses some of the new investments and collaborations under the program.

New Resources for Working Lands for Wildlife Efforts

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) welcomed the expansion of USDA’s WLWF program. The research and conservation tools are used to align stakeholders and prioritize conservation actions to achieve landscape scale objectives and benefit both people and wildlife.


Since 2010, more than 8,400 producers in 48 states have teamed up under WLFW to conserve and enhance nearly 12 million acres of working agricultural lands.

Conservation districts, land operators, and partners can learn more about participating in the WLFW program by visiting the program’s webpage and talking with their local NRCS staff.
