Jane Koger is a fourth-generation Chase County rancher who has been owner and operator of the Homestead Ranch near Matfield Green, Kansas for over 25 years.  Her interest in prairie chickens reflects the values of a program she has recently begun on her ranch, the Homestead Range Renewal Initiative (HRRI). HRRI's multi-faceted program-alternative grazing
strategies, fence removal, a prescribed patch burning system, reseeding of native plants on previously cultivated land, and management of invasive trees - is an ecosystem approach to rangeland management that simultaneously considers biological diversity and grazing productivity.  This integrated program is an acknowledgement of Jane's stewardship responsibilities to leave a legacy of land that is in better health than when she acquired it in 1979.  Jane, who recently became a member of the North American Grouse Partnership, is excited about having the Prairie Chickens on her ranch.  She enjoys participating in the Dance of the Prairie Chickens. *Jane has a team of prairie chicken enthusiasts helping her this year.

Jane Koger is a fourth generation rancher and businesswoman who owns and operates Homestead Ranch near Matfield Green. Community service, conservation and education have always been part of Jane's life. Jane founded the Prairie Women Adventures program which has provided hundreds of women from across the country with hands on ranching experience and the opportunity to understand the role that ranchers play in respectfully maintaining land and producing high quality beef. In 1994 Koger celebrated her birthday by inviting the public to a "Symphony on the Prairie. More than 3,000 people from far and wide congregated at her Homestead Ranch for a magical union between symphonic music and the prairie landscape. In 2004, Chase, Lyon, Morris and Wabaunsee County leaders founded Symphony in the Flint Hills, Inc. to heighten the appreciation and knowledge of the tallgrass prairie. Its annual prairie concerts have become a Kansas tradition that now attracts approximately 7,000 attendees from all over the world. In 2004, Jane began the Homestead Range Renewal Initiative, an experimental burning program, utilizing patch burning to enhance wildlife habitat, especially for the Greater Prairie Chicken. More recently, the Homestead Range Renewal Initiative has expanded to support on-going research targeted toward eradicating sericea lespedeza. Jane hopes to leave the ranch in such a way that a fifth generation of her family can continue to prosper on the land that her Great Grandfather homesteaded.
