2017 Land Report 100: Stan Kroenke
No. 4 Stan Kroenke
One of the greatest opportunities awarded to private landowners is the restoration and enhancement of the lands they steward. At Kroenke Ranches, this includes initiatives at Montana’s Broken O Ranch and Texas’s Waggoner Ranch. On the Broken O, focal points include upland bird enhancement as well as stream and wetland restoration. Given the Broken O’s 40-plus miles of spring creeks, the latter is a massive undertaking that incorporates a survey and engineering design team to guide the construction efforts. On the Waggoner, wildlife enhancement was initiated with hiring a quail biologist and wildlife staff. The focal point on the Waggoner is the reduction of Mesquite density to 20 percent to create ideal quail habitat through water retention and vegetative diversity. Helicopter surveys have indicated that quail populations are already on the rise as a result of the enhancement work.
