PA Game Commission Work Day
Believe it or not, spring is almost in the air and it's time to start planning 2011 projects. All animals enjoy the new acreage of PA State Game Lands #44 but our work will help habitat for small animals such as rabbits and birds by improving food and cover. Our tractor crew will continue our annual planting of grasses, clover and sorghum later in the spring.
The Pheasants Forever Work Day on PA Game Lands #44 is set for Saturday, March 19, 2011 starting at 8:00 AM. Groups will form and work 9AM-noon and 1PM until 4PM or until the work is done. We will park past the dedication sign going in to the Shawmut tract of PA State Game Lands #44 at the top of the hill.
We will need as many people as possible to bring chain saws, chaps, helmets, pruning poles and other safety gear and brush cutting tools. Everyone using a chain saw will be required to wear chaps, no exceptions. We will be working outdoors cutting brush and building habitat so dress for the weather with good boots. Pheasants Forever will once again provide a lunch for the volunteers.
This is a great way for scouts and kids to earn community service hours. Everyone must complete an Agreement for Voluntary Service form. If you are bringing anyone under 18 years of age, please use the contact information below so that their parents or guardians can sign a waiver a head of time.
Can you commit to 3 hours of good outdoor exercise? Please reserve this date on your calendar.
Local PF Chapter 630 will have an exhibit at the Central PA Outdoor and Sports Show at the Clearfield fair grounds running March 25-27, 2011. Hours are 10-7 Friday and Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. The show coincides with sales at the Clearfield sporting shops. Come see our habitat and pheasant display.
