Nebraska Game and Parks Commission The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is the steward of the state's fish, wildlife, park, and outdoor recreation resources for the best long-term interests of the people and those resources. It manages state parks and management areas and it is responsible for maintaining, developing and managing Nebraska's natural resources and regulating their use. http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov

Rainwater Basin Joint Venture The Joint Venture provides partnership structure for agencies, non-governmental organizations, landowners, and farmers to address natural resource issues through projects that also improve migratory bird habitat. From its inception, conservation organizations, private citizens, business and industry have been equal partners with state and federal wildlife agencies in this Joint Venture. Providing incentives for landowners to manage their land for waterfowl has been the key to its success. The goal of the Rainwater Basin Joint Venture is to restore and permanently protect 37,000 acres of high-quality wetlands and 25,000 acres of associated uplands with adequate water and distribution to meet the habitat needs of waterfowl and other migratory birds. http://rwbjv.org/


    The Nebraska Environmental Trust The Nebraska Environmental Trust seeks projects that bring public and private partners together collaboratively to implement high-quality, cost-effective projects. The Trust values projects that leverage private investment in conservation and emphasize long-lasting results. Spending on approved projects is not to be a replacement for tax-funded projects or mandates and operations of government; it is used solely to carry out innovative ideas making Nebraska’s good life even better. Applicants for Nebraska Environmental Trust grants must meet tightly drawn criteria for eligibility to assure public benefit and substantial environmental gains. http://www.environmentaltrust.org/

    Nebraska Bird Partnership The Nebraska Bird Partnership (formerly Nebraska Partnership for All-Bird Conservation) is a super-partnership of over 100 conservation organizations and agencies that have united to better understand and manage the bird resources of Nebraska. And even more broadly, this group recognizes that birds are the ultimate gateway to managing  system health. The partnership recognizes and even embraces the broad differences among members. We understand that if we focus on our parallels and similarities among the various missions of the partners, there is much that can be achieved. The resource will benefit the greatest when we focus on our shared objectives and manage systems for greater health. http://www.nebraskabirds.org/
