Working Lands for Wildlife

Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) is the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service’s premier approach for conserving America’s working lands to benefit people, wildlife and rural communities.

Win-win, voluntary conservation

The Working Lands for Wildlife model started  in 2010 with a funny, ground-dwelling bird that lives in the West's sprawling sagebrush country.

Today, the successful conservation approach is putting Farm Bill resources to work for wildlife by implementing science-backed conservation that improves agricultural and forest productivity AND enhance wildlife habitat.
