14th Annual Central PA Pheasants Forever Membership Banquet 2024

Dear Friends in Conservation,

The Central Pennsylvania Chapter of Pheasants Forever will hold its Fourteenth Annual Membership Banquet on Saturday, March 23, 2024. This year, we will be holding the banquet at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Grays Woods, just outside of State College. This venue will give us more space to accommodate a larger crowd. The address is 867 Grays Woods Boulevard, Port Matilda, PA 16870.

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 and establishing a huntable wild pheasant population. Last year,
out volunteers dedicated 75 hours directly to hands-on habitat restoration work including mowing, mulching, spraying and planting. With our conservation partners, we restored 33 acres of upland nesting cover, including 11 acres of pollinator habitat, plus 12 acres of wetland and over 6 miles of stream habitat. We also maintained an additional 5 acres of upland bird habitat. In October 2023, we hosted a Youth Pheasant Hunt where 18 youth hunters took their first chance at harvesting a pheasant.

In 2024, we will again work closely 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 and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to control invasive weeds, plant food plots, and establish native grasslands and pollinator habitat on public and private land in Central Pennsylvania. Thank you to the members and donors that make these projects possible.

Prizes and auction items at this year’s banquet will include guns, clothing, wildlife prints, outdoor gear, and collectibles. There are three ways to purchase tickets: Mail the enclosed order form back with a check to the address on the bottom, call or e-mail to reserve your tickets, or order your tickets on the website: Click Here To Get Your Banquet Tickets .
