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.
