Congressman Walz Brings Blufflands Conservation Partners Together

The Ken and Terry Visger Farm in southeastern Minnesota conserves wildlife habitat and water quality from which we all benefit!Landowners Ken and Terry Visger recently hosted Congressman Tim Walz and a bevy of conservation partners at their home near Hokah in southeastern Minnesotas.

The Visgers conserved their land six years ago, and have been continually adding to and improving their goat and tall-grass prairie.

As Terry puts it: "It's for the pollinators!"

The Congressman asked great questions about Ken and Terry's goals, and expressed his appreciation for their dedication to wildlife habitat and water quality.

Executive Director Kris Larson appreciates Tim Walz' commitment to conservation:

"We all owe Representative Walz a big 'thank you' for his leadership and support of conservation issues, including private land protection.

Thanks to policies and partnerships that will help clean our water and protect wildlife habitat, our state is much better off thanks to the Congressman's efforts." Board Member Kelly Scanlan presented an award of appreciation to Congressman Tim Walz.

Several conservation partners were in attendance as well, including The Nature Conservancy, Minnesota DNR, Mower and Root River Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Mississippi Valley Conservancy, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and others. 

These public private partnerships are the key to accomplishing long term conservation goals, and it's always great to make new connections as well as greet past friends.
