Pheasants Forever, NRCS and Nebraska Game and Parks will be hosting a Landowner Habitat Tour in Imperial this Friday.
The tour will begin at Mid-Plains Community College in Imperial at 10 am and end at 2 p.m. MT.
Presentations will be at the college, and the tour will end with field site visits in Chase County. A lunch will be provided at no charge.
Topics that will be presented include a Nebraska Game and Parks Commission program update, NRCS programs that are available and updates about Pheasant Forever projects and programs.
