The array of conservation assistance programs available to private landowners in lesser prairie-chicken country can be mighty confusing. A concise new publication of the Lesser Prairie-Chicken Initiative (LPCI) sheds light on several key programs.
How long do the contracts last for each program and how do they differ from one another? Can a landowner take part in more than one program at the same time? Who should a landowner contact to get started?
LPCI’s new Conservation Assistance Programs brochure answers these questions and many more. It also provides a handy table comparing six assistance programs offered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency, and Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.
