Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program in Arizona

Since 1992, the Arizona Partners program has focused on protecting, restoring, and/or enhancing wetland and streamside (riparian) habitats that will benefit federal trust species; federally listed threatened and endangered species, waterfowl, shorebirds, and migratory birds.

Major goals of the Partners Program

The Partners Program emphasizes the restoration and enhancement of ecological communities for the benefit of threatened and endangered species and other Federal trust species in conjunction with the desires of private landowners. The goals of the program are to:

  • Protect Federal threatened and endangered species, and other Federal trust species;
  • Protect and restore valuable habitat such as riparian, wetland, stream, and grasslands on non-Federal lands;
  • Restore biological integrity;
  • Reduce habitat fragmentation;
  • Develop partnerships to restore habitat;
  • Provide technical assistance to landowners, and
  • Promote environmental education.

Project Types:

  • Building livestock exclusion fencing and off-stream-watering systems to allow for restoration of streams and riparian areas.
  • Planting native trees and shrubs along riparian corridors and wetland edges.
  • Removing exotic plants that alter the natural habitat and compete with native species.
  • Planting native grasslands and other vegetation.
  • Restoring long-term streambank stability through bioengineering techniques (e.g vegetative approaches to stabilizing eroding banks).
  • Constructing Outdoor Classrooms with schools that want to connect children with nature
