Working Group Charge

The charge of the Private Lands Working Group is to facilitate information sharing among state fish and wildlife agencies to help develop and improve their private lands conservation programs. Instead of focusing on specific Farm Bill or state conservation programs, the Working Group will concentrate on the broader challenge of conservation delivery to private landowners and the systems required to efficiently and effectively address that challenge. This includes program design, partnerships with other conservation agencies and organizations, and state agency staffing and training.
