conservation programs such as the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), Wetland Reserve Program (WRP), and Environmental Quality Improvement Program (EQIP). This project is part of the Wildlife Component of CEAP which was created to quantify effects of conservation programs on wildlife in agricultural landscapes. The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is a cost-share and rental payment program of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Under the program, the government pays farmers to take certain agriculturally used croplands out of production and convert them to vegetative cover, such as cultivated or native bunchgrasses and grasslands, wildlife and pollinators food and shelter plantings. In , a multi-agency effort initiated the Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) to quantify environmental benefits of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) conservation programs such as the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), Wetland Reserve Program (WRP), and Environmental Quality Improvement Program (EQIP).

  The Northern Great Plains (NGP), a region often referred to as America’s last honey bee (Apis mellifera) refuge, has undergone rapid land-cover change due to cropland expansion and weakened land conservation programs. We conducted a trend analysis and estimated conversion rates of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) enrollments around bee.

Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Conservation Reserve Program Executive Summary ES-ii December CRP land can be enrolled in a new program, the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program, without violating the contract. The Great Plains Foundation programs seek to address multiple challenges facing conservation and communities in Africa including climate change and carbon emissions. Most major airlines also offer detailed calculations of the emissions from your specific flight and the opportunity to offset those emissions through a third party verified platform. The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) has effected major changes to the landscape, especially in the northern Great Plains. Breeding birds have responded dramatically to habitat changes by colonizing CRP fields, often in large numbers. The vegetation in most CRP fields consists of introduced grasses and legumes, along with a variety of weedy species.
