A Conservation License is a prerequisite for all resident and nonresident licenses. It includes the State Lands Recreation Use Permit (for hunting, fishing and trapping). It also allows a resident or nonresident who is a Legion of Valor member, regardless of age, to fish.

Conservation License applicants are required to provide their social security number in addition to the information usually requested. A valid driver's license or a valid photo ID is required to purchase a license.

Conservation Licenses, along with most other FWP licenses, can be purchased via the Online Licenses Service - get started with the link below.
