Protecting People and Wildlife Habitats
Owning and managing land for the benefit of wildlife is something that takes a great deal of time and a good amount of money. It is an undertaking that is annually limited by changing seasons, unpredictable weather, elbow grease, and available time. In a nutshell, managing land for wildlife is a never-ending labor of love.
Ken and Beth Reed understand the passion and dedication needed to successfully manage a property for wildlife, which is why they recently joined Pheasants Forever's Habitat Legacy Society by making plans to transfer ownership of their farm to Pheasants Forever after their lifetimes.
"I've been blessed with the ability to hunt, fish, and travel," Ken says. "Now, I want to be able to give back so that others can enjoy our land in the same way we gained peace and satisfaction from enjoying the outdoors."
Ken and Beth spend a great deal of time improving the habitat on their farm. In fact, they've recently completed a number of projects, ranging from planting pollinator habitats to removing an old farmhouse.
"At the end of a hard day's work improving habitat on the farm, it's great to know that Pheasants Forever will be the steward of this land long after we leave this earth. We sleep easy at night knowing that the habitat work we do today won't be lost tomorrow," Beth says.
Thank you, Ken and Beth, for choosing Pheasants Forever as your legacy partner. We are honored and humbled to be the organization that you have selected as the long-term caretaker of your land.
