Welcome to Central Pennsylvania's Pheasants Forever Chapter website. Our mission statement is as follows:
"The Central Pennsylvania Chapter of Pheasants Forever was founded in March 2008 to restore local wildlife habitat in Centre and surrounding counties. Our goal is to restore wetlands, streams, stream buffers and uplands with a focus on restoring upland bird habitat and establishing a local, huntable wild pheasant population."

Volunteers Needed! If you are interested in becoming a committee member, let one of the current Officers know or call Jesse at (814) 598-9789.. We need help planning chapter events such as our Membership Banquet, youth events, clay shoots or other fundraising events. Can you plant trees or run a tractor? We need volunteers to assist in our habitat restoration projects as well.
Our meetings take place in different places around the Centre region, typically on Thursday evenings. If you'd like to join us, please contact one of the Officers.
Membership Banquet: Our next Membership Banquet will be held in March 2015 at the Mountain View Country Club. More information to follow.
Informational Wing Buffet: On Sept 25, 2014 at the Old Fort American Legion, we will be hosting an informational Wing Buffet with some prizes. Residents of Penns Valley, Georges Valley, and Brush Valley are invited to learn about the work we do in restoring wild pheasants in Pennsylvania.
Youth Pheasant Hunt: On October 18 2014 we will be hosting the Junior Pheasant Hunt at Fox Gap. Assistance will be needed through out the day to ensure that the kids have a blast. The first volunteers that we need are experienced Dogs. We will have 4 teams of two hunters filling, 2hr time slots in the field. 2 teams in the morning, break for lunch (catered bbq), 2 teams in the afternoon. If you are able and willing to run your dogs please email me, Chuck McCole firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will get you added to the schedule. If time is an issue and you will require a morning or afternoon slot let me know and I will put you there. If you don’t have a dog or are embarrassed to take out your Labs that don't even point, and would like to help we will still need bodies to assist with the trap thrower, bird planting, food, fun. Again shoot me an email and I will ensure your added to the list. As more information about the event develops I will be sure to keep everybody informed. Stay safe and have a great summer, I’ll see you in the field.
