Landowner stories

South Dakota is home to some of the best hunting and fishing in the world, thanks to the farmers and ranchers who care for their land.

Farmers and ranchers across South Dakota understand the importance of establishing and maintaining wildlife habitat. For many landowners, the decision to improve wildlife habitat on their property is personal as well as economical.

Habitat Pays provides landowners with resources and financial incentives to achieve individual habitat goals. Habitat truly does pay because of opportunities for improved soil health, increased land value and abundant wildlife for all South Dakotans.
