Meeker County Pheasants Forever's members are truly passionate about creating, preserving and restoring habitat that benefits pheasants, quail and other upland wildlife. This unique model empowers local chapters with the responsibility to determine how 100 percent of their locally-raised conservation funds will be spent.
This year the chapter helped to fund a prescribed burn at Manannah WMA, 3 WPA tree removal projects on 160 acres, and 2 brome conversions. All of this is made possible by the dedicated volunteers who attend the monthly meetings and the awesome banquet attendees.
Preserving our Natural Resources
Creating, restoring, and maintaining habitat is a constant battle. We invite you to join the Meeker County Pheasants Forever of Pheasants Forever in its quest to ensure a country rich in natural resources and long on people willing to work to preserve them. After all, natural resources - pheasants, quail, and other wildlife, plus the land, air, and water on which they live - are our greatest resources.
2015/2016 Habitat Projects
Starting in 2015 and continuing through 2016, the Meeker Pheasants Forever chapter is providing the local match for nearly $100,000 in habitat projects within Meeker County. All of these projects are grant funded through the Legacy Amendment and require a local 10% match which the chapter is covering. These projects range from prescribed burning 58 acres on Manannah WMA, to tree removal and brome conversions. The full list of projects includes:
58 acres of prescribed burning on Manannah WMA,
Tree removal on Harvey WPA (220 acres), Casey WPA (150 acres), and Tyrone Flats WPA (7 acres)
Brome conversions to a divers native grass and flower cover type on Hanson WPA (29 acres), Tyrone Flats WPA (19 acres), and Provenchure WMA (35 acres)
These projects are the types of things the chapter is spending their money on that is rased at the banquet.
