A Look Back at 2016

Thank you so much for your donation. Because of your support, the Kansas Land Trust had another productive year of land conservation.

  • Because of you KLT conserved four properties protecting over 7,200 acres of prairie and prime farmland in the Flint Hills.

  • Because of you and the Kunze family, KLT preserved 632 acres of prairie in Washington County.

  • Because of you and the Earl W. Jr. and Terri Youngmeyer Family Foundation, KLT conserved over 4,600 acres south of Beaumont, Kansas. (Wichita State University has identified nearly 500 plant species on the Youngmeyer Ranch documenting the significant biodiversity of this prairie.)

  • Because of you and the Steinfort family, KLT conserved an additional 1,895 acres in Geary County.

Together these four easements protect over 30 miles of riparian buffer, helping protect our streams for present and future generations.


These landscapes were protected in 2016:
