Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program in Wyoming

The Partners for Fish and Wildlife (PFW) program is a broad-based partnership of Wyoming landowners, local communities, conservation districts, sportsman groups, non-governmental organizations, federal and state agencies, and others, whose mission is to address landowner and landscape conservation needs. 

Upland acres enhanced are primarily grazing systems developed with individual landowners to manage the grassland for wildlife and livestock production. Incentives such as water developments, fencing, cattle guards, etc., are our chief tools of negotiation for developing specific wildlife and livestock use plans.

Wetlands, restored or enhanced, provide habitat for waterfowl, shorebirds and other waterbirds, while at the same time are providing alternative watering sources for cattle producers.

One of our main focuses for instream restoration is the removal of fish entrainment structures and barriers. In most cases, restoration results in a narrowing and deepening of the existing river channel using instream structures to provide stream stability. Riparian fencing goes hand in hand with stream restoration, as well as grazing systems.
