Conservation Plant Material Information

Technical data sheets on recommended plant
species for erosion control and wildlife manage-

The USDA-NRCS Plant Material Program web-

Wildlife Management Information &
Assistance
Data sheets offer suggestions for attracting and
maintaining native wildlife. This office encourages
participation in the Wildlife Habitat Incentives
Program (WHIP) which is a voluntary program for
people who want to develop and improve wildlife
habitat on private lands. It provides both technical
assistance and cost sharing to help establish and
improve fish and wildlife habitat.

Educational Materials & Programs
Our Department hosts the annual Long Island
Regional Envirothon
, which promotes environ-
mental education through encouraging High
School Students to participate in this competition,
which offers scholarships and other incentives to
the students.  High School Teachers are notified
each year of the competition and asked to create
a five-member team to compete.  We also have
Guides for Teaching Soil and Water Conservation
and how to set up an Outdoor Classroom.
