In the Wild with Greg Wagner


PROMOTING POLLINATOR HABITAT by Greg Wagner

With pollinators like honey bees and native insects experiencing significant population declines due to habitat loss as well as other factors, the  Nebraska Pheasants and Quail Forever conservation organization has produced a new promotional brochure that outlines general information about pollinator habitat (planting/managing native wildflowers and flowering shrubs). With a General USDA Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) sign-up happening next month that will offer landowners additional Environmental Benefits Index (EBI) points for establishing pollinator habitat, this brochure can serve as a simple reference to follow. Remember, the best possible pollinator habitat = the best possible pheasant and quail habitat. Here’s the brochure for you to read: Pollinator Habitat Guide
