Landowners in the Twin Platte Natural Resources District are encouraged to enroll dry cropland near center-pivot irrigation systems into the Corners for Wildlife program.

Corners for Wildlife improves wildlife habitat and provides a consistent return by paying up to $100 per acre in annual payments for the five-year enrollment period. In addition, cost-share funds provided by the Natural Resources District and Pheasants Forever will cover or significantly reduce the landowner’s cost for installing habitat materials, coordinator Bill Carhart said.

The maximum improvement required to receive $100 per acre in annual payments is two shrub thickets per corner, as well as the base seed mixture, all cost shared at 75% by the program.

Those preferring to plant only the wildlife seed mixture will qualify for $60 per acre annual payments. The seed can be planted by no-till methods into existing crop stubble, once the seed arrives from Pheasants Forever.

The Corners for Wildlife program is administered by Natural Resources Districts in cooperation with the Nebraska Environmental Trust and Pheasants Forever. The program does not require hunting access on enrolled acres.

Contact the Twin Platte Natural Resources District office in North Platte for more information on this and other habitat programs.

The Twin Platte NRD office is located in the Great Western Bank Center, 111 S. Dewey, in North Platte. The phone number is 308-535-8080.
