USDA Fulfills Goal of 1 Million Conservation Acres

USDA has allocated 400,000 state acres to support conservation and restoration of wildlife and their habitats as part of the Conservation Reserve Program.

Acres are now allocated in 97 state acres for wildlife enhancement projects located in 36 states. Learn more.
