Preserving our Natural Resources

Creating, restoring, and maintaining habitat is a constant battle. We invite you to join the Mower County Habitat & Pheasants Forever of Pheasants Forever in its quest to ensure a country rich in natural resources and long on people willing to work to preserve them. After all, natural resources - pheasants, quail, and other wildlife, plus the land, air, and water on which they live - are our greatest resources.

Local Chapter Projects

Every year the Mower County Habitat & Pheasants Forever has on going projects throughout the community. With our proceeds from fundraising and donations from community leaders, we are fortunate enough to give back, putting all our money in the ground to preserve habitat throughout our region.  If you know of a project or would like to learn more about how to help in the effort to preserve your local habitats, please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Background on Lost Lake:  This 85-acre tract of farmland was purchased by the Mower County Chapter of Habitat & Pheasants Forever in 2005.  The Chapter restored the land with a native grass planting, and in the fall of 2006, added 2 acres of shallow ponds.  In 2008, the Chapter donated the property to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, so that it can be permanently maintained as a public hunting area.  The FWS completed the installation of the parking area and signs at the end of October 2009.  The WPA is now home to many pheasants, ducks, geese, and deer.
