Farmer, physician, soldier donates land for wildlife

Southeast Russell County, Kan., around the township of Dubuque, is a part of the world where arid short grass and lush tall grass meet.

It's this little piece of paradise where the Dubuque Land & Cattle Co. operates and where Wallace Weber, M.D., resides. Along with his sister, Cheryl of Topeka, Kan., Weber last December donated the 1,700-acre operation to Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever, the largest single land donation in the organizations' 26-year history.

The land includes two full sections, a half section, a quarter section and an additional 80 acres. The first half section was transferred to PF/QF in December 2008. Upon Dr. Weber's death, the land will be accompanied by a charitable remainder trust for management expenses with the entirety of donation completed upon Dr. Weber's death. All told, the Weber donation is expected to be valued at well over $1 million.
