Wildlife Management Plans-Incorporating your goals and objectives for your property, we can help you enhance wildlife habitat for the species you want to attract. There are also a couple of programs that could provide financial assistance. The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) offers cost share to landowners for converting highly erodible cropland or other environmentally sensitive acreage to vegetative cover, such as native grasses, wildlife plantings, trees, filter strips, or riparian buffers. CRP reduces soil erosion, protects the Nationís ability to produce food and fiber, reduces sedimentation in streams and lakes, improves water quality, established wildlife habitat, and enhances forest and wetland resources. The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) encourages creation of high quality wildlife habitat, such as wetlands and native prairies, on private land. Through WHIP, technical and financial assistance are offered to landowners to develop wetland enhancements and wildlife tree planting.
