California Waterfowl Habitat Program Updated:09/2022

The CWHP provides economic incentives to private landowners who agree to manage their properties in accordance with a wetland management plan developed cooperatively by California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) biologists and the participating landowner.

CDFW biologists will meet with the landowner each spring to assess wetland conditions and prescribe site-specific habitat management actions (e.g. irrigations, summer discing, weed abatement). The annual spring meeting provides an opportunity for the State and the landowner to discuss management objectives, as well as what actions to take during the summer growing season.
