SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Turkeys for Tomorrow (TFT) has signed a cooperative partnership agreement with the National Land Realty Company (NLR) of Greenville, SC. Together, they will help landowners make sure wild turkey flocks thrive for generations to come.
“We connected because of shared values that have benefits for both of our organizations”, says Jason Lupardus, TFT’s Director of Partnerships and Business Operations. “We’re a young organization with a membership made of hunters taking a focused approach on saving wild turkeys by using science-based solutions for long-term sustainability. We’re excited to work with such a great organization that wants to help us with our mission.”
NLR is an actively-growing real estate company that has more than 400 agents across the US.
“National Land Realty is excited to support Turkeys for Tomorrow and the landowners that they serve through their conservation efforts along with the buyers and sellers we serve. We look forward to offering our local expertise to their organization as well as learning how to ensure wild turkey flocks are set up for success for many more generations,” says Ronnie Richardson, CEO of National Land Realty.
TFT is working closely with researchers across the nation to combat wild turkey decline. They’re doing this by addressing habitat concerns from wetlands to uplands. They’re arming citizen scientists with the tools and the know-how to make things better on their own places. They’re fostering private landowner cooperatives to share this knowledge, and they’re laying the groundwork for tomorrow’s hunting heritage.
TFT will be rolling out a 5-year plan in 2024, laying out a mission set to impact up to 1,000,000 acres of privately-owned land in the Mississippi River Delta. TFT attended the National Land Summit in San Antonio, Texas to participate in their annual meeting in early February.
“I was impressed with how many of their staff have such an extensive background in the outdoors, and with their passion to help people find properties across the country based upon their outdoor goals,” Lupardus said.

Jason Lupardus, director of partnerships and business operations with Turkeys For Tomorrow, and Mac Christian, chief marketing officer with the National Land Realty Company, look forward to working together for the mutual good of wild turkeys and owners of the land where they live.
