Wildlife habitat is crucial to the South Dakota way of life and our hunting traditions. The habitat programs offered through Second Century Habitat Fund are designed to economically help the producer while implementing wildlife habitat where it makes the most sense to do so.
Working Lands Habitat Program
The focus of this program is to enroll marginal cropland such as saline and moist soils, field edges, other less productive soil types or areas producers want to manage as wildlife habitat for 5 years.
Winter Storm Intiative
Creating quality habitat consisting of trees, food plots, and the heavy cover needed to survive these conditions is paramount in sustaining South Dakota’s pheasant and other wildlife populations. And that’s why the Second Century Habitat Fund is putting forward $100,000 into habitat and winter food plots across the state in 2023. We will also be matching donations, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000.
