Our Work

The Rainwater Basin Joint Venture strives to facilitate cooperation between government and private groups and individuals in the pursuit of conservation. Decisions and actions are undertaken with a united voice and are founded on common sense and science-based information.

Partners use their collective talents and resources to maintain this sustainable landscape, while recognizing the region’s social, economic, and environmental needs. We envision a landscape that supports healthy agricultural communities, rich with wetlands, streams, and grasslands across the central portion of Nebraska.

 

 

To that end, our goals are to:

  • Restore and maintain sufficient wetland habitat in the Rainwater Basin to assist in meeting population objectives identified in the North American Waterfowl Management Plan.
  • Restore and maintain sufficient bird habitats within the RWBJV Administrative Area to support the goal of the four national bird conservation plans: the North American Waterfowl Management Plan; the Partners in Flight North American Landbird Conservation Plan; the United States Shorebird Conservation Plan, and the North American Waterbird Conservation Plan.

Our objectives in pursuit of these goals and our strategies for achieving those objectives are outlined in the RWBJV Implementation Plan and four supporting bird conservation plans: the RWBJV Landbird Plan, the RWBJV Shorebird Plan, the RWBJV Waterbird Plan, and the RWBJV Waterfowl Plan.
