Kansas landowners Bill and Maggie Haw recently donated a conservation easement on 3,120 acres of native tallgrass prairie in the Flint Hills of Kansas to The Nature Conservancy (TNC).

Located in Chase County, the conservation easement protects rare tallgrass prairie in the Flint Hills south of Cottonwood Falls.

Last year, the Haws also donated a conservation easement on more than 10,400 acres, the largest conservation easement donation in Kansas history, to TNC.  The Haw’s total of donated conservation easements is now more than 13,500 acres.

See the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks press release for more information.

  1. It has been very interesting to have a Google Alert for Blogs on “Kansas Flint Hills!”
    Yours came up today!
    We have a 22 county Flint Hills Tourism Coalition, Inc. promoting visits to the Kansas Flint Hills – this is the website: http://www.kansasflinthills.travel/
    Our web site is to promote the Kansas Flint Hills; and we were so happy to be in the 22 page color photo spread in National Geographic’s April Issue on the Kansas Flint Hills, as a distinctive landscape. We are now working to get the Kansas Flint Hills designated as a National Heritage Area.

    We would appreciate a link from your site, to ours, if you are willing to do so. THANKS!
    Best wishes!

    Bill 😉
