Rainwater Basin Joint Venture


The Rainwater Basin Joint Venture was established under the aegis of the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP), an international agreement to restore and protect North American waterfowl populations through conservation of their habitats. Under NAWMP, Joint Ventures have grown across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, creating a framework for organizations, government agencies, and individuals to form partnerships for conservation. Partners pool their resources and knowledge to accomplish more together than they could by working individually.

The RWBJV partnership includes conservation organizations, landowners and agriculture producers, natural resources districts, researchers, and government agencies from the federal and state levels, as well as county and local levels. Although most of our partners work in south-central Nebraska, a growing number are active elsewhere in Nebraska’s mixed-grass prairie regions and across the Great Plains. We also cooperate with other Joint Ventures and with the Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative to achieve conservation objectives on a broader scale.
