PF utilizes Legacy Funding to permanently protect 1,820 Minn. acres

Pheasants Forever announces the completion of 12 land purchase projects in eight Minnesota counties with the help of grants recommended by the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council. The properties, totaling 1,820 acres, are now permanently protected for wildlife and will be turned over to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources or U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. All 12 properties will be opened to public hunting and outdoor recreation as either state wildlife management areas or federal waterfowl production areas.
“It’s a great day for Minnesota conservation,” says Joe Pavelko, Pheasants Forever’s Minnesota director of conservation. “These projects span different regions of the state, but all share the common theme of conserving wildlife habitat forever. And all these outstanding projects were made possible with funding from the Outdoor Heritage Fund, which was created by Minnesota’s Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.”
