Pheasants Forever Receives First Donated Conservation Easement

Pheasants Forever has received its first donated conservation easement, a 63 acre parcel of land in Nebraska's Adams County.

The donation from Dr. Ralph "Rip" Pfeiffer permanently protects habitat critical to upland birds and migratory waterfowl in Nebraska's Rainwater Basin region.

Under the terms of the easement, Dr. Pfeiffer will retain ownership of the property, while Pheasants Forever ensures permanent wildlife habitat management by limiting future land uses. Dr. Pfeiffer wanted to perpetually protect the property from agricultural production and development. He also contributed $15,000 directly to Pheasants Forever for ongoing stewardship of the easement.

Nebraska's Rainwater Basin is important to both upland, migratory and song birds. In fact, more than 250 bird species have been observed in the region.
