Build a Wildlife Area Week Highlight: Kansas’ Lovewell Area Wildlife Area Expansion


With the support of people like you and programs like Build a Wildlife Area, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have created over 204,000 acres of permanently protected and publicly accessible upland wildlife habitat. Now, through the ambitious goals of our Call of the Uplands® campaign, we aim to increase this total by nearly 40%.

This week we’re celebrating our past successes, sharing more about our ambitious goals and rallying to raise support for the Build a Wildlife Area program.

Welcome to Build a Wildlife Area Week!

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever recently acquired 304-acres of prime upland habitat in north-central Kansas for the purpose of expanding benefits associated with an existing Wildlife Management Area.

Located in the heart of Kansas' pheasant and bobwhite quail ranges, the property is adjacent to – and an expansion of – the Lovewell Wildlife Area, a much-loved outdoor recreation destination, making it strategic for wildlife management and public use.

The goal for this project is to restore and protect high quality upland while creating expanded public access— all of which are strategic objectives that are at the core of who Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are.

By donating to our Build a Wildlife Area program, you’ll ensure our organization is able to restore and open more properties like this 300+ acre Lovewell Wildlife Area Expansion in Jewell County, KS.
