Conservation Planning

The Conservation Planning Program is responsible for statewide oversight of various approaches used to balance the needs of threatened, endangered, and sensitive species and habitats with the needs of land users. Our primary focus is to provide policy guidance to large-scale, multi-species planning approaches that are partnerships between state, federal and local governments and private interest groups. We also coordinate habitat acquisition associated with plans, local assistance grants for conservation planning and implementation, conservation and mitigation banking, and voluntary integrated resource management plans.
