Legacy Amendment Benefits MN Pheasants

Jerry Carlson

UNDATED — We told you earlier this week about the dwindling acres of land in the Conservation Reserve Program. But, there is some help for improving pheasant habitat in Minnesota.

Minnesota’s Outdoor Heritage Fund has benefited greatly from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. Grants worth nearly $10-million have been funneled into the outdoor fund to invest in state wildlife management areas which are open to public hunting.

The money is being used to improve grasslands through brush clearing, prescribed burns and the conversion of cropland.

Efforts by Pheasants Forever have also led to grants where land has been purchased for hunting in Stearns and Kandyohi Counties.
