Saint Paul, Minn. – August 19, 2008 – Can wildlife habitat and agriculture coexist? Minnesota farmer Bob Liesenfeld shows how it’s possible on this week’s episode of Pheasants Forever Television, airing on Outdoor Channel on Thursday, Aug. 21st at 10PM CDT / 11PM EDT. The episode will also air on Friday, Aug. 22nd at 10AM CDT / 11AM EDT and again on Saturday, Aug. 23rd at 5:30PM CDT / 6:30PM EDT.
Pheasants Forever Television travels to Cottonwood County in southern Minnesota to visit the farm of Bob Liesenfeld. Yes, Liesenfeld is an ag producer, but he’s also a steward of the land who understands the importance and necessity of having quality wildlife habitat on the landscape.
Next, Pheasants Forever Television pays a visit to Minnesota’s Renville County where a Pheasants Forever habitat team is helping to preserve a key historical site. The 45-acre Birch Coulee Battlefield was a significant battleground during the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862. With a little “prescribed” help from Pheasants Forever’s habitat team, the prairie battlefield gets burned – a critical tool in the management of prairie grasses.
Finally, Pheasants Forever Television makes the journey to Platte, South Dakota, where the crew catches up with some of this country’s former servicemen. These brave veterans have given much to their country, now watch as the community gives back to them in Platte’s Paralyzed Veterans Hunt.
