Habitat Management Resources for Texas Landowners

Site Evaluation
Find out what you have
An on-site evaluation of your land by a trained professional will provide you with information about the soil and what vegetation is currently on your property. WHF, NRCS and TPWD are a few of the organizations that offer this service.
The findings
WHF will write a Site Assessment Report that includes the type of vegetation and soil,  an outline of the needed practices and an estimated cost.  
Management Plan
Budget Estimate
Funding Resources

The bottom line and details

There is help available

Once a decision has been made to move forward with the information provided in the Site Assessment Report, WHF will create a 3 to 5+ year Habitat Management Plan with a timeline indicating when to implement practices needed to take your property from its current condition to native prairie habitat. 
A breakdown of the estimated costs will be derived from the list of practices in the Management Plan based on current prices and positive weather conditions. Certain practices may not be implemented due to weather and may need to be replaced by another option when the time comes.
WHF will assist landowners in applying for funding from various government and private funding programs to help pay for their restoration efforts.  Landowner incentive programs generally will cover a portion of the cost of each restoration practice.
