Upcoming Field Days
Habitat Conservation Options for Threatened and Endangered Species
Wednesday, May 4 (12pm – 1pm)
The Iowa Learning Farms (ILF) conservation webinar taking place May 4 at noon CDT will feature Andrew DiAllesandro, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) state private lands coordinator. DiAllesandro works with landowners and farmers to promote voluntary conservation efforts on private lands and provides guidance regarding technical and cost-share assistance to facilitate conservation delivery.
In the webinar, “Strategic Habitat Conservation for Threatened and Endangered Species,” DiAllesandro will discuss the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife (PFW) Program, a unique offering which promotes efficient achievement of voluntary conservation implementations on private lands. He will highlight the program’s flexibility in achieving conservation deployments and will discuss strategic objectives of the program. The program currently focuses on endangered pollinators and fish, but it also provides benefits beyond those species.
