2021 MPRI Annual Report

Michigan Pheasant Restoration Initiative (MPRI) Coalition Accomplishment Report:  2011-2020

“We are very proud of the diverse coalition of agencies and organizations, who contributed to MPRI accomplishments over the last 10 years. Their staff, volunteers and financial resources made  a big difference for wildlife habitat and our quality of life. We look forward to seeing this coalition continue to work together in this unique conservation partnership.” 

– Bill Vander Zouwen, Pheasants Forever Regional Representative & MPRI Co-Chair

Restoring Habitat Together - THE REPORT

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:

  • Becoming a $1000 Pheasants Forever Life Member
  • Becoming a dual Life Member in Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever ($1000 for second Life Membership)
  • Becoming a Patron Member at $10,000.
  • Becoming a Gold Patron Member at $25,000.
  • Contributing any amount to our Michigan Adopt-A-Game Area Program that accelerates grassland habitat improvements on 20 state wildlife areas in southern Michigan (donations of $500 or more get an engraved metal plate with their individual or business name on a property kiosk).
  • Contributing any amount to our Legislative Action Fund that has brought millions of dollars to Michigan for conservation.
  • Contributing any amount to our No Child Left Indoors initiative that connects youth to nature and outdoor recreation.
  • Contributing any amount to our nationwide Build A Wildlife Area Program to permanently provide habitat through acquisition of new public lands.
  • Honoring the passing of a dear family member or friend with a gift in their honor to Pheasants Forever

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.
