Corteva Agriscience supports NFWF conservation programs designed to restore thousands of acres of critical grassland habitat in the Southern Great Plains, reflecting its commitment to enhance biodiversity through sustainable land management practices.
CORTEVA AGRISCIENCE and NFWF work together to restore grassland habitat, improve sustainable land management practices, and enhance biodiversity through two separate programs – the Restore Colorado Program and the Pecos Watershed Conservation Initiative. This partnership directly supports both NFWF’s work to implement a variety of conservation strategies and Corteva’s goal to enhance biodiversity through sustainable land management and habitat conservation.
Together, Corteva and NFWF are helping grantees in Texas restore up to 8,000 acres of brush-invaded dry mixed prairie, benefiting migratory grassland birds and native wildlife. In Colorado, Corteva and NFWF are supporting ranchers as they work to improve grazing lands management on 56,000 acres, restore more than 6,000 acres of grassland, and improve soil health through the implementation of sustainable agriculture practices. Together, these efforts will improve vital habitat for target bird species such as Chestnut-Collared Longspur, Sprague’s Pipit, Lesser Prairie Chicken, Eastern Black Rail, Lark Bunting and Thick-billed Longspur, and other wildlife.
