Pheasants Forever/Corners for Wildlife

Corners for Wildlife areaThe Corners for Wildlife program began in 1995. Farmers can plant grasses or a mixture of trees and shrubs. The program's purpose is to replant center pivot corners from crops into wildlife habitats. Nebraska is the only state with a Corners for Wildlife program and there is great demand by farmers to get into the program. Through the program, farmers agree to maintain the corners as a wildlife habitat for five years. Materials and equipment costs are paid by Pheasants Forever and the NRD pays for tree planting. The Nebraska Environmental Trust pays annual rent payments to the farmer, up to $100 per acre.
