California Establishes New Programs for Preservation of Game Bird Habitats

California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed Assembly Bill 614 which increases the cost of game bird and duck hunt validations to boost the Fish & Game Preservation Fund and other habitat preservation programs for game birds and waterfowl. The newly enacted legislation also authorizes the Department of Fish & Wildlife to enter and incentivize agreements with landowners for the cultivation of waterfowl and game bird habitats on their land.
