    The FWS turned 150 years old this year and published America's Bountiful Waters to commemorate the milestone.  Thought you and AREA members might enjoy it.  Click the cover on Amazon to see the Table of Contents.  It's national in scope and there's something for everyone. Hoping you can share it widely.

    Urban Wildlife Conservation Program

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service established the Urban Wildlife Conservation Program to better serve our increasingly diverse and urbanizing nation. With more than 80% of Americans now living in urban areas, we are spending more time indoors and becoming increasingly disconnected from nature.  

    The Urban Wildlife Conservation Program strives to raise awareness of wildlife conservation and the National Wildlife Refuge System among Americans who have fewer opportunities to experience and enjoy these public lands and the wildlife who live there.    

    The future success of conservation lies in the ability to connect new generations and historically underrepresented communities to conservation and empower local organizations, cities, and towns across the country to seek innovative community-based solutions for wildlife conservation. 

    Learn more about the Urban Wildlife Conservation Program
