HANDS-ON HABITAT SUCCESS

‘‘

Volunteerism is at the core of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever, it’s the sharp end of the shovel and the foundation on which our organization is built. Therefore, volunteer-led habitat focused events aren’t new or surprising, but the way chapters rallied around our first annual Hands-On Habitat event was inspiring.

Throughout the country more than 90 events involving new and seasoned participants alike took place in conjunction with Earth Day. Our chapters, volunteers, and members truly rallied to the idea of making a difference in their local community. Whether big or small, all of the projects had the singular focus of improving our favorite upland landscapes and at the end of the day, that’s exactly why The Habitat Organization exists.

Trash was picked up, barbed wire fences were taken down, access to water was improved, seed was planted, invasive species were removed, and more. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

This spring was a learning moment, consider it a pilot program that created an incredible amount of insight and energy around how we can do more and reach new supporters and even more volunteers. And that’s exactly what our chapters will aim to do.

Be on the lookout for our Hands-On Habitat Days in the future, but in the meantime, if you were able to host or participate in an event, THANK YOU. If you were unable to attend an event this spring but want to learn more or get involved with the great work your own local chapter is doing, make sure to find a chapter in your area.
