Conservation Choices for Wildlife: Golden-winged Warbler and Other Forest-dependent Species

Conservation Choices for Wildlife: Golden-winged Warbler and Other Forest-dependent Species

This guide outlines seven key conservation practices recommended to forest landowners who want to sustainably manage forests to benefit wildlife and forest health. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and conservation partners work with forest landowners to plan and implement these practices that benefit a variety of species, including the golden-winged warbler. This assistance includes the development of a custom forest management plan as well as financial support to help cover part of the costs of implementing the practices. Technical and financial assistance are available through the Farm Bill, the largest source of federal funding for private lands conservation.

Golden-Winged Warbler 2018 Progress Report

NRCS and the Golden-winged Warbler Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) provides technical and financial assistance to help agricultural producers create or enhance breeding habitat that supports for golden-winged warblers in the Appalachian Mountains. WLFW also provides landowners with predictability under the ESA, providing incidental take coverage for species that depend on early successional habitat. Predictability enables landowners to operate their working lands as long as NRCS-prescribed conservation practices are maintained.
