DU uses OHF to create Enhanced Grazing Lands and Wildlife Habitat program

The Enhanced Grazing Lands and Wildlife Habitat program, funded through North Dakota’s Outdoor Heritage Fund (OHF), is helping North Dakota landowners maintain 11,000 acres of expiring Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) lands and other grasslands. The Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and Ducks Unlimited partnered to enroll landowners in this program in 2015-2016 using a core set of NRCS Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) practices. The program offers enhanced grazing and habitat management incentives to transition lands at high-risk of conversion, to working lands for grazing and improved wildlife habitat.

Gifts of Land

DU will consider accepting certain properties offered for donation. As a general rule, DU does not hold title to real estate over the long term. Lands donated to DU are usually transferred to a subsequent owner shortly after DU acquires title.
