Private Lands Assistance via Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD)

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department

TPWD provides technical assistance, free of charge to land managers who wish to incorporate  wildlife management practices into present and future land use decisions.

Upon request, a TPWD wildlife biologist will meet with the landowner to perform an ecological assessment of the property and discuss the landowner’s management goals. The wildlife biologist will:

  • provide the landowner with tailored recommendations in the form of a written management plan and demonstrate proper record keeping for wildlife management progress
  • detail and demonstrate wildlife population survey techniques so that the landowner can independently survey wildlife according to the management plan
  • maintain a relationship with the landowner via periodic visits and interpretation of the wildlife survey, and will also help to adjust the plan as needed

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD)’s Private Lands and Habitat Program is a part of the Wildlife Division.
