Can You Answer the CALL OF THE UPLANDS?
Like you, I’ve seen first-hand how we have lost an incredible amount of wildlife habitat as well as numbers of hunters, who fund conservation through their license fees. This is particularly true of grassland wildlife such as pheasants and quail and the small game hunters who pursue them. Pheasants Forever is desperate to do something significant about these problems with our Call of the Uplands Campaign, with the goal of improving 9 million acres of habitat, engaging 1.5 million people in educational events, and advocating for laws, policies and budgets that support our mission. That’s a $500,000,000 commitment!
I’m wondering if you are in a position to Answer the Call by helping our campaign in one or more of the following ways:
For a limited time, new Life members will receive a PF logo Yeti Hopper soft-sided cooler that retails at $300 at my local hardware store (logo only through PF).
If you wish to send a check for Life Membership or other contributions, you can make it out to Pheasants Forever and mail it to Bill Vander Zouwen, 3777 Black Creek Dr., Hudsonville, MI 49426. If you wish to consider a major gift in the form of a check, stock transfer, or other form, I’d be happy to talk to you and facilitate your gift.
The MI Adopt-A-Game Area Program raised $389,515 for grassland habitat projects on MI public lands in 2019! Funds were provided by a diverse group of sponsors across the state, and will restore or enhance 1,108 acres over the next few years!
