Habitat Conservation

California Waterfowl Association - Waterfowl Habitat Conservation Programs

Conservation Programs

Our wetland restoration and enhancement projects focus on breeding and migratory waterfowl habitat and work to increase public hunting opportunity. 

California Waterfowl works very closely with public agencies, other non-profit organizations, and private landowners to deliver quality habitat restoration and enhancement projects throughout. Our biologists are working throughout the state with regional expertise.


Working Statewide with Regional Expertise

California Waterfowl has biologists stationed throughout the state from McArthur to Murrieta that have developed expertise in their respective regions. This gives us the unique ability to serve our member's needs in all the major wetland areas of California. This also allows us to deliver habitat projects effectively and efficiently across the state in each unique area, like the Klamath Basin, Sacramento Valley, Suisun Marsh and the Salton Sea, to name a few.

Habitat projects completed by California Waterfowl biologists are tailored to the needs of the region and are designed to produce the greatest benefit to waterfowl and waterfowl hunters while working within the unique constraints of the area.
