Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW)

The WLFW webportal enables interaction between NRCS's WLFW partners and others interested in conserving whole landscapes and empowering rural economies.

The content here augments those WLFW resources available for on USDA's website, and allows users (including landowners) access to a wide variety of information, online training materials, planning and decision-support tools, as well as access to experts, NRCS field staff, and landowners.

Focus Species

WLFW partners with private landowners to conserve large, intact landscapes for people and wildlife. We do that by focusing our efforts on “umbrella species” that act as bellwethers for how their ecosystem is faring.
