Immersing young adults in a curriculum designed to educate and expose them to upland bird ecology and management. Operation Outdoors will generate an inherent “trickle down” effect fostering future conservation leaders.
Enhance the quality of feeding, breeding & roosting areas for migratory birds, as well as providing increased access for disabled hunters, and a controlled environment for teaching youth about waterfowl hunting traditions.
Habitat for Homecroft will provide a habitat project for the school and community to participate, teaching youth about conservation, indicator species, native and non-native flora and fauna, establish a new wetland and restore habitat for native species.
Provide critical nesting and winter cover in an area that currently does not have as much as what is needed for sage grouse long-term survival to keep them off the Threatened and Endangered Species list.
The Kansas Quail Initiative is designed to focus our quail habitat enhancement and restoration efforts in two strategic focal areas.
Reclaim 145 acres of the recently closed Crawford County Landfill and conduct woodland enhancement, planting of native forbs and grasses, construction of an outdoor classroom and related habitat improvements.
Even though habitat loss in the Missouri Coteau has been very extensive, almost 3 million acres of native prairie and approximately 900,000 acres of prairie wetland habitats remain. These ecosystems depend upon each other for full functionality.
