Working Lands for Wildlife Workspace

The Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) workspace is a password protected space. You must login or register to get access. The workspace was developed to foster collaboration between NRCS and its partners and support private landowners within the WLFW initiatives.


A host of effective partnerships are focused on conservation that achieves ecological goals while maintaining healthy economies in rural areas for working landscapes. The WLFW workspace enables interaction between NRCS's WLFW partners and others interested in conserving whole landscapes and empowering rural economies. The content here augments those WLFW resources available for on USDA's website, and allows any registered user (including landowners) access to a wide variety of information, online training materials, planning and decision-support tools, as well as access to experts, NRCS field staff, and landowners.
