Joshua Spies Fine Art recently teamed with Beer for Wildlife to raise funds and awareness for "Build a Wildlife Area."
A limited edition package of Rooster Lager beer featuring Spies' artwork is now available throughout South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and North Dakota. A portion of the proceeds from all limited edition sales will go to support Pheasants Forever's "Build a Wildlife Area."
"This collaboration works so well because both of us are committed to conservation," Jason Markkula, CEO of Beer for Wildlife said.
Spies recent release "Flushing Pheasants" is featured on the 6 pack carrier, as well as the bottle label.
"I'm honored to be included in Beer for Wildlife's quest to preserve land," Spies said.
The Build a Wildlife Area program's goal is to raise funds for the acquisition of land that is critical as wildlife habitat. 100 percent of the funds raised goes directly toward land acquisitions utilizing state, federal and other grants.
