WLFW Workspace and Training

The WLFW workspace and courses are being developed to enable interaction between NRCS WLFW partners and others interested in conserving whole landscapes and empowering rural economies.

  • Courses will support a host of effective partnerships focused on conservation that strive to achieve ecological goals while maintaining healthy economies in rural areas for working landscapes.
  • Any registered user (including landowners) can access a wide variety of information, including online training materials and planning and decision-support tools. You can register here.
  • This workspace enables access to – and interaction between – experts, NRCS field staff, and landowners.

This WLFW workspace will initially service the nine (9) eastern, south and mid-western target species:

  1. American Black Duck
  2. Colorado River Mussels
  3. Conasauga River
  4. Eastern Hellbender
  5. Midwest Blanding's Turtle
  6. Northern Bobwhite Quail
  7. Northeast Turtles
  8. Shorebirds of Louisiana Wetlands
  9. Yazoo Darter

The habitat needs of these species are representative of healthy, functioning ecosystems where conservation efforts benefit a much broader suite of species.
