Nebraska Pheasants Forever


Originally established in 1985, Conservation Reserve Program, or CRP offers annual payments through 10-15 year contracts to participants who establish grass, shrubs, and tree cover on environmentally sensitive lands. CRP is the nation’s most successful conservation program, improving soil, water, and wildlife resources, while providing important financial payments to farmers and landowners. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), CRP payments average $4,455 per farm annually. In addition, CRP lands contribute at least

$4.7 billion annually from hunting expenditures, much of which support rural communities across the nation. There are currently 1.2 million CRP acres under contract in Nebraska.

Established in 1982, Pheasants Forever is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of pheasant and other wildlife populations in North

America through habitat improvement, land management, public awareness, and education. Such efforts benefit landowners and wildlife alike.
