NEBRASKA WILDLIFE FEDERATION

Results: In past years, we helped defeat a dam that would have destroyed a stretch of the Niobrara River, and worked successfully to have it declared a National Scenic River. We helped defeat several major dams that would have robbed the Platte River of flows needed for fish, wildlife and people, and helped negotiate a basin-wide, long-term management plan to begin to restore habitat and river flows to the Platte. We distributed information on our web-based Wildlife Week curriculum to 5,000 K-12 teachers in Nebraska this year. We developed an online database and online training system for our Adopt a Stream program in 2010, and are working to establish a partnership to allow us to expand the program all across Nebraska. We established a Wildlife Action Network in 2010 to deliver updates on state and federal legislation and wildlife-related activities via email, and are active in the state legislature on water policy, budget issues, and wildlife management. We are active on Farm Bill conservation program issues.
Target demographics: People who love Nebraska wildlife.
