The mission of Wildlife Services is to safeguard public health and safety, and to protect Nevada County agriculture, industrial and natural resources through the science and practice of wildlife animal damage control.

The main goal of the program is to remove only the animals that are causing the problem.  To contact the Federal Trapper assigned to Nevada County, call 530-273-2648 during office hours.
