“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.”
