Fish and Wildlife Management
The Forest Cover Act provides authority for the Corps to manage project lands and waters for any or all conservation purposes, including fish and wildlife conservation. The Corps conducts fish and wildlife management activities that seek to maintain populations of targeted wildlife species though the manipulation and management of habitat. The Corps coordinates and conducts programs in conjunction with other Federal, state and local agencies having fish and wildlife management responsibilities using a variety of techniques including the placement of artificial structures and other practices. Where not managed by other Federal, state of local agencies, the Corps will conduct fish and wildlife management programs on all project lands and water that are identified by land classification and/or resource objective for fish and wildlife management.
