Wildlife Lands

Brought to you by:

The acquisition of key parcels of wildlife habitat is an important part of the DFW’s and the Department of Fish & Game’s management programs. Wildlife is a product of the land and without good habitat wildlife populations cannot exist. Last year, land agents secured just over 3,000 acres of open space, bringing the total of lands owned by the Commonwealth and managed for wildlife and for recreation by the DFW to 190,178.76 acres. Wildlife Management Area regulations (listed in the General Hunting Regulations) apply to all DFW lands except Wildlife Sanctuaries and Game Farm properties.

These lands are grouped as follows:
