Learn More About Hands-on Habitat

Habitat improvement is at the heart of the Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever mission. For the past two years, we have put out a call-to-action in the spring for our Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever community to help improve upland habitat in their local areas through Hands-On Habitat workdays.
 

Because of the success of those workdays and the positive impact on upland acres across the country, we are excited to bring back Hands-On Habitat Month again in 2024! This year, through a dedicated month of on-the-ground volunteerism and habitat projects, we’re once again challenging our chapters, volunteers, and supporters to find time during the month of May to host or participate in a project devoted to improving our upland landscapes. Hands-On Habitat workdays hit the center of the bull’s eye when it comes to promoting and executing our mission while engaging with your community.

 


This is a call-to-action for all of us to put boots on the ground, get our hands dirty, and prove that we are the sharp end of the conservation shovel.
