“Ranchland Trust of Kansas is doing vital and essential work in preserving Kansas grasslands, and our family is honored to have been the first conservation easement granted by RTK.”

Jim HoyConservation Easement Owner

“Anne and I are pleased to have been able to donate a conservation easement to RTK on some of our Flint Hills property. Most of my adult life has been devoted to conservation and wildlife related causes. This land is an unusual mix of grasslands, creeks and bottomland that you find sprinkled around the Flint Hills. It is home to large numbers of grassland birds, deer and turkey. It’s reassuring to know that thanks to RTK, these creatures and the land they call home will be protected long after we are gone.”

John DykesConservation Easement Owner

“The joy of the native prairie should be available tomorrow and in the future. We believe our easements with RTK will help to ensure that our little part of the beautiful Smoky Hills will always be a place to experience the native grass, plants, wildlife, and grow good Kansas beef.”

The great staff at RTK made the process not only easy but fun. As our natural world continually gets degraded or destroyed, conservation efforts like those of RTK become increasingly critical.
