Overview:

The Wildlife Division has direct responsibility for monitoring the numbers and health of wildlife species, setting population conservation and management objectives, overseeing wildlife habitat restoration and maintenance, and regulating harvest of game animals. The Oregon Conservation Strategy is a key part of the Division.

Grant applications for Bird Stamp Program may be submitted for habitat development and improvement projects, equipment, surveys and/or research. Projects must benefit waterfowl and upland game birds. 

Some habitat projects may require approval by appropriate land use regulatory agencies. ODFW will only release project funds if the project either is not regulated by, or is compatible with, the local comprehensive plan and zoning ordinance.
