Conservation Programs at Kanati Land Management

Hi I’m Nate Hylla with Kanati Land Management and I’m here today to talk about conservation programs. Kanati Land Management staff have decades of experience with conservation programs. What is a conservation program? It’s a program that you can enroll your land into and maybe offset costs for landowners to give you an income or just provide the wildlife habitat that you’re looking for. Today we stand in a field that’s CRP. These trees were planted 25 years ago and you can see the height of them. These are opportunities that are out there. This property is also going to get enrolled into a permanent easement that will protect this land forever for future generations for hunting recreation and just pure enjoyment of the outdoors. Maybe crp or the conservation reserve program or permanent easements aren’t for you. Maybe you have a wetland that you’d like to put in. Maybe you’ve got some sort of a basin that you’d like to put in to store water temporarily for your pheasant habitat. Those are also opportunities that are out there and again our staff has decades of experience working with these conservation programs. So call us today at Kanati Land Management for a free consultation for your conservation program needs.


Our staff has over 20 years of experience working with state and federal conservation programs. We know the ins and outs of many state, federal and non-profit conservation programs that can offset costs for landowners. Let us help identify those programs that will partially or fully fund your habitat work. We’ll take all the hassle out of getting through the paperwork and enrollment process.
