State legislation to incentivize the creation of upland nesting habitat for ducks and other ground-nesting game birds in California will result in a $10 surcharge on the price of both the California Duck Validation and the Upland Game Bird Validation next hunting season.
On July 22, 2021, federal, state and local partners held a signing ceremony in Lincoln to mark the Western Placer County Habitat Conservation Plan and Natural Community Conservation Plan’s (HCP/NCCP) transition into implementation. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) approved the HCP/NCCP in April 2021.
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), will hold an online outreach meeting Thursday, Aug. 26 from 4 to 6 p.m., for licensed hunters to provide comments and recommendations regarding public hunting programs in the Sacramento Valley.
CDFW has undertaken the largest wildfire protection and resiliency effort in its history, working to safeguard nearly all of its wildlife areas, ecological reserves and the surrounding communities from wildfire ahead of peak wildfire season this summer and fall.
