Winter Wildlife Habitat

Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife

If you’re looking to improve wildlife habitat on your property, now is a great time to get in contact with your district wildlife biologist and start planning: Learn more about wildlife habitat landowner assistance programs online: Indiana Division of Fish & Wildlife Landowner and Wildlife Habitat Assistance
