2 About the Public Access Atlas This Public Access Atlas identifies and consolidates Nebraska's public access resources for the benefit of our hunters, trappers and anglers. It displays over 1.2 million acres of publicly accessible lands across Nebraska including state, federal, and conservation partner lands as well as privately-owned lands enrolled in the Open Fields and Waters (OFW) program. By working cooperatively, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (Game and Parks or NGPC) and its partners aim to increase hunting, fishing and trapping opportunities in Nebraska. Available Formats of This Atlas: Printed Version Available at Game and Parks offices and wherever hunting, fur harvest and fishing permits are sold. The printed atlas is published and distributed to vendors in late August each year.

The user of this atlas is responsible to make sure the land he/she enters is posted with signs denoting that a property is open to public access. It is also the responsibility of users to follow rules and regulations of the lands or waters they are accessing.

Some public access properties may be added or removed following the publication of the printed atlas due to printing dates and other circumstances.
