We are excited for our annual North Central PA Pheasants Forever Banquet as every year this is the highlight of our local Pheasants Forever Chapter! As our largest fundraiser and most important revenue source it allows us to do habitat projects for the protection and enhancement of pheasant and other wildlife populations in our area and to provide opportunities for the various hunts we sponsor. Each year we have lots to feature and showcase for the upcoming banquet. Below is a few of the many different items on schedule for our upcoming banquet. We look forward to seeing you in attendance!
By attending the Banquet, you give our chapter the opportunity to continue spreading outdoor enjoyment and education to our veterans, youth, women, and individuals in the north-central region of Pennsylvania. Below you can see some of our successful 2022 activities and achievements. We hope you will consider supporting us at our banquet on March 11, 2023 so we can continue to provide these experiences to individuals in our area.
