Local Habitat Efforts
Washington 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.
Whether it's through improving habitat, informing the public about land management or educating future generations of hunting enthusiasts, conservation is the underlying principle in all we do at the grassroots level.
Preserving Our Natural Resources - Hands-On Habitat Day April 22, 2022
Creating, restoring, and maintaining habitat is a constant battle. We invite you to join the Washington 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.

WHERE: The entire group will gather at a residence (19245 Hilo Avenue N., Forest Lake 55025) and carpool a short distance to Hardwood Creek WMA. This location will also serve as a gathering point for sharing comradery after the event.

Local Chapter Projects
Every year the Washington County Pheasants Forever has on going projects throughout the community. With our proceeds from fundraising and donations from community leaders, we are fortunate enough to give back, putting all our money in the ground to preserve habitat throughout our region. If you know of a project or would like to learn more about how to help in the effort to preserve your local habitats, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
