New York landowners: get paid to improve your land for wildlife


Private landowners in New York can now take advantage of a program to improve their properties for wildlife.

The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program provides financial assistance to eligible private landowners for creating high-priority shrubland and grassland habitat.

Through this voluntary opportunity, landowners can secure funding to complete projects that will help wild turkeys, deer, grassland and shrubland birds, and other wildlife. Projects may include planting native grasses, removing unnecessary trees, creating 3- to 5-acre shrubland patches, and planting shrubs to establish cover for wildlife.

Natural Resources Conservation Service and/or NWTF staff can assist with developing conservation plans and provide guidance with the habitat work. Participants in the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program do not have to be NWTF members.

NWTF's regional biologist in New York is assisting with this program through a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Natural Resources Conservation Service, and NWTF's New York State Chapter.

Landowners in New York who are interested in this cost-share opportunity should contact Doug Little, NWTF senior regional biologist, at (518) 239-4427 or dlittle@nwtf.net for more information.
