In Nebraska, the Partners Program focuses
in ecosystems or watersheds where our efforts will accomplish the greatest benefit. Three
major geographic areas located in Nebraska are recognized as being of international
importance to wildlife. Potential habitat restoration projects located within these
geographic areas are considered to be a high priority for the Partners Program.
Nebraskas Major Geographic Focus Areas
Central Platte River
In addition to the three major
geographic focus areas, the Partners Program also recognizes the importance of other fish
and wildlife resources located throughout Nebraska. Other important habitat areas of
concern include the Missouri, North Platte, Niobrara, Loup, and Republican Rivers, eastern
saline wetlands, Todd Valley wetlands, and the southwest high plains playas. These areas
contain important habitats for migrating, wintering, and breeding fish and wildlife.
