The Central Pennsylvania Chapter of Pheasants Forever will hold its Twelfth Annual Membership Banquet on March 26, 2022. We will once again hold our event at the Mountain View Country Club in Boalsburg.
The Central Pennsylvania Chapter of Pheasants Forever is a local conservation group founded in March 2008 to restore wildlife habitat in Centre and surrounding counties. We restore uplands, wetlands, streams, and stream buffers with a focus on restoring upland bird habitat. With our conservation partners last year, we restored 150 acres of upland nesting cover, including 19 acres of pollinator habitat, plus 25 acres of wetlands and over 5 miles of stream habitat. In addition, we maintained an additional 45 acres of upland bird habitat. In October 2021, we hosted a Youth Pheasant Hunt where 18 youth hunters took their first chance at harvesting a pheasant.
In 2022, we will maintain our partnership with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, restoring habitat on State Game Land #333 in Centre County and State Game Land #317 in Union County. We will continue to work with the Game Commission to control invasive weeds, plant food plots and establish native grasslands and pollinator habitat. In addition, we will continue habitat restoration on private land throughout Central Pennsylvania.
The committee wants to thank the many members that supported our chapter last year. We had a successful banquet and a successful year of habitat restoration. The cooperation and support of our members made this possible.
Prizes and auction items at this year’s banquet will include guns, clothing, wildlife prints, outdoor gear, and collectibles. Please order your tickets online. All banquet tickets must be paid in advance. Payment at the door is not an option.
