The Farm Bill Biologist position is made possible through a grant partnership between the Branch Conservation District, Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), Pheasants Forever, Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD), USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), and the USDA Farm Services Agency (FSA).
Our Farm Bill Biologist works with landowners to restore or enhance their land in order to provide quality habitat for wildlife. This includes partnering with the NRCS to enroll the landowner in Farm Bill programs, such as the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), assisting the Conservation District to promote educational workshops and tree plantings, and partnering with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to form Wildlife Cooperatives and enroll landowners in programs such as the Hunting Access Program (HAP)
