Private Stewardship Provides Protection For 900 Acres

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

More than 900 acres in South Dakota’s Black Hills region recently became public property. The land was saved from potential resort development and now becomes key wildlife habitat and a favorite destination for hunters, hikers, and campers. The land was listed as a high-priority acquisition by the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks. Thanks to financial support from Wildlife Forever, the land was purchased and the public has more land to enjoy. Among the wildlife that are benefiting from this purchase include wild turkeys, white-tailed deer, mule deer, neotropical migratory songbirds and other species.
