Habitat Partners Members
Arizona Elk Society's Board of Directors saw a need to focus efforts to set aside land such as riparian areas, critical winter range, migration corridors, quality calving grounds and forage meadows. The plan included offering conservation easements to landowners that will help them continue operations on their land while limiting the loss of wildlife habitat through development. At the same time as these issues were being worked, the AES Board of Directors saw a need to raise funds in order to conserve land as wildlife habitat without taking away from the funds raised for on the ground improvements and youth projects. Thus was the Habitat Partners of Arizona program established.
