Couple donates ranch, $2 million to KU

LAWRENCE, Kansas (AP) – A couple plans to donate a 120-acre ranch and $2 million to the University of Kansas and the KU Endowment.

The university said in a news release Monday that the couple wants to remain anonymous.

The property in northeast Kansas includes native wildflowers and grasses, walnut trees and cottonwoods, and pioneer trails. The $2 million is intended to maintain and improve the land.

Ed Martinko, director the Kansas Biological Survey, said the gift will be used to preserve native plants and for research and education.
