About Howard K. Vincent Waterfowl Production Area
In acknowledgment of the longtime Pheasants Forever President and CEO, Howard K. Vincent, a new waterfowl production area has been acquired. This acquisition is a part of the larger product of Build a Wildlife Area, an initiative to raise funds to purchase wildlife habitat for public recreational use.
This 198-acre permanent habitat protection project highlights Howard K. Vincent's dedication to the Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever through his presidency and CEO roles. Howard K. Vincent Waterfowl Production Area (WPA) is home to pheasants, waterfowl, and white-tailed deer. Securing this land builds on the Minnesota-Iowa border upon previous commitments to wildlife habitats including the multi-state efforts of North American Waterfowl Management Plan, the MN Pheasant Action Plan, and the IA Great Lakes Watershed Management Plan.
About Howard K. Vincent
Howard K. Vincent joined the Pheasants Forever organization as a volunteer in 1984 and was hired as a full-time employee a short three years later. Thirteen years later, Vincent then became the second president of the organization in 2000.
Many efforts made under Vincent’s leadership will be felt for years to come. Throughout his leadership, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have grown into a well respected conservation organization in the United States with the dedication to habitat development and protection, education, as well as overall advocacy. More than 24 million acres of habitat have been secured in the organization’s history, most of which is accredited to Vincent’s leadership.
