Another Prairie Preserved!
The Kansas Land Trust launched this new year with another prairie preserved in the Flint Hills. Thanks to Helen and Fred Germann for preserving 1,474 acres of tallgrass prairie and prime farmland in Geary County. KLT has worked with the Germann family for almost five years to fulfill their intentions to leave a conservation legacy for all future generations.
The mixture of prairie and cropland provides good habitat for greater prairie chickens. In addition, preserving this land clusters 10,118 conserved acres in Geary County.
KLT wishes to thank Jeff Keating and Fort Riley's Army Compatible Buffer Program (ACUB) for their significant support in this conservation project.
