St. Clair County Pheasants Forever Highlights from 2015

Our 2015 Banquet was mentioned in the National Magazine as being in the “Top Ten” in the country for attendance.

At the 2016 Pheasants Forever State Convention, President Bill Furtaw was named to the PF “Long Spur Society” in recognition of his many years of service to PF.

At the 2016 State Convention, St. Clair County Pheasants Forever received four framed Certificates of Recogniton.  They were for Banquet Attendance, Significantly Increasing Memberships,  Grassland Acreage Habitat Recognition, and “Conservationists Without Boarders”  recognizing our contributions in working with other chapters on grassland projects, contributions to Youth Outreach Coordinator, Legislative Action Fund, and the Youth Shooting Sports Endowment Fund.

SCCPF donated $300 to Pine River Sportsman Club to help obtain supplies for their Youth Shooting Day.

SCCPF is distributing high quality youth booklets, “Ultimate Youth Shooting Sports Guide” to some area shooting clubs and hunter safety classes

PF Rep. Bill Vander Zouwen has been named the Chairman of the Mich. Pheasant Restoration Initiative Steering Committee.

The collective chapters of PF in Michigan, Michigan PF State Council, was a sponsor of the “Camo at the Capitol” event held on the steps of the State Capitol in Lansing.   Pheasants Forever has obtained a seat on the Legislative Sportsman’s Caucas Advisory Council to advise our State Legislators.  Along with our PF National Legislative Action, the voice of our members is being heard.

Our 2015 30th Annual Banquet was one of most successful ever!  We had only a couple open seats. The near-sellout crowd helped us raise near-record level of funds to put towards habitat improvement, conservation education, and youth activities.  Let a Board member know if you aware of activities that align with our mission and should be considered for some support from St. Clair County Pheasants Forever.
