Michigan is home to a wide variety of ecosystems that support an abundance of wildlife. A lot of hard work takes place every day to ensure these natural resources will continue to be enjoyed for generations.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has partnered with Michigan Pheasants Forever to conserve and enhance state grasslands. This conservation work benefits pheasants and other wildlife, such as butterflies, insects, songbirds and deer. It helps people, too, because healthy grasslands improve the air and water quality.
