The Sandhills Task Force is a non-profit organization consisting of a 16-member board of Sandhill ranchers and conservation agencies. The organization’s focus is on affecting sound environmental and economic practices in the Sandhills of Nebraska. This is accomplished using a variety of approaches including promoting research, education, technical assistance, and on-the-ground conservation
practices. The policy of the STF is to remain non-political in affecting change within the area. Its interest, rather, is to help ranchers, land managers, and governing bodies make informed decisions regarding the Sandhills resources. The organization serves 20,000 square-mile sandhills area counties including Arthur, Blaine, Brown, Cherry, Custer, Garden, Garfield, Grant, Holt, Hooker, Lincoln, Keith, Logan, Loup, McPherson, Morrill, Rock, Sheridan, Thomas, and Wheeler in Nebraska.
