In the Wild with Greg Wagner

ATTEND THE STATE HABITAT MEETING by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission


Living the conservation lifestyle! This is a first year CRP field on our Wagner Family Farm in southeast Nebraska. This photo was taken in mid-August.

Calling all landowners, hunters and conservationists! On Saturday, February 6 Kearney will be the “Pheasant and Quail Capitol of Nebraska” as the Ramada Inn there plays host to the 19th Annual Pheasants & Quail Forever State Habitat Meeting. Come and learn about everything from proper upland game bird habitat management to conservation programs benefiting the birds and other wildlife. As a farm owner/manager, I will tell you from a first-hand perspective that this is an ultra-informative event with many different resource professionals under one roof able to assist you with the best, most cost-effective habitat design for your property ! In fact, one of the premiere features of the meeting is what is called the Landowner Help Desk.  With the harsher winter weather conditions that we have experienced thus far in Nebraska, there has been a renewed emphasis on providing good habitat, especially for upland game birds! 

I took this photo of another CRP field on our farm just last week. That grassy cover is standing tall amid deep snow cover!


The State Habitat Meeting is open to anyone.  You can pre-register for it online through the Nebraska Pheasants & Quail Forever website, at

If you’re unable to make the meeting, be sure to tune in to The Great Outdoor Radio Show on Omaha’s ESPN Radio/1620 AM or online at  for a special, two-hour, “live” broadcast at the event from 9-11 a.m. CST that morning. We’ll hit the highlights for ya!  

In the meantime, think “HABITAT” and make plans to attend the meeting or at least give us a listen! See ya there!

wow… I really enjoyed the photos, especially seeing the crp now. I must say it actually looks wonderful. What a fantastic job that was accomplished by all. So glad the Winter has not affected the growth, etc. Good job. Thanks.
