Disclaimer

To avoid double counting acres where multiple programs contributed to the acquisition of a single parcel, the acreage is only aggregated under the program that provided the majority of funding. For example, if the table below displays a dollar amount greater than $0 for a given year but shows 0 acres, the program was not the primary contributor for any parcels in that year. As a result, a prolific program may show very low acreage figures on this page. To see customized program information please visit the map viewer tab or contact the Conservation Almanac Team.

Highlighted State Programs

Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (formerly Department of Wildlife and Parks) uses three funds to acquire land. The Wildlife Fee Fund (est. 1927) and Wildlife Conservation Fund (est. 1989) receive revenues from sales of lifetime hunting, fishing, and fur harvester licenses and from Migratory Waterfowl Habitat Stamp (est. 1987). The Parks Fee Fund (est. 1955) receives revenue from permit fees, tolls, and other charges from the use of state parks. These three funds support land acquisition, wildlife protection and management, and habitat preservation.
