“The Stewardship Division is unique because they recognize landowners as a part of the conservation equation and the people as part of the ecosystems they strive to preserve”
~Las Animas County Rancher

Because the majority of grassland species have been declining and over 80% of the shortgrass prairie ecosystem was (and still is) under private ownership it was (and is) crucial to have private landowners’ interest and cooperation.

Through outreach efforts including workshops, presentations, landowner visits, bird inventories, and the distribution of educational materials RMBO’s Stewardship Division (originally Prairie Partners) has built a voluntary coalition of Great Plains landowners and resource professionals committed to bird habitat conservation.

In addition the program helps private landowners find funding for and implementing on-the-ground habitat enhancement projects to benefit the conservation of at-risk wildlife species throughout the Great Plains.

RMBO’s presence within the Intermountain West and Great Plains from Montana and Nebraska to Texas has increased the need for our growing outreach program. The continued presence of the Stewardship Division in local communities strengthens the relationship between private landowners and state, federal and private conservation entities.
