Speaking to landowners about agriculture and land management practices


The Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation owns and manages over 9,100 acres of land. This includes 700 acres of agricultural property as well as 8,400 acres of timberland and diverse wildlife habitat. We also proudly manage habitat for several endangered species and we work very hard to develop and sustain our conservation models. We partner with local, state, and federal organizations as well as working directly with landowners with land management educational workshops.
