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."

Also, new this year, check out our Pheasant Trapper, Jesse's YouTube site to see him in action! If you have additional questions, please contact one of the Officers or the webmaster.
