St. Joseph County Michigan Pheasants Forever 615's members are truly passionate about creating, preserving and restoring habitat that benefits pheasants, quail and other upland wildlife including songbirds, butterflies and pollinators. This unique model empowers local chapters with the responsibility to determine how 100 percent of their locally-raised conservation funds will be spent.
Our past projects in St. Joe County have included partnering with the DNR to plant warm season grasses at the Leidy Lake State Game Area (SGA), conducting similar activities at the Three Rivers SGA, planting a demonstration plot near the Sturgis Middle School. Additionally we conduct our annual food plot seed distribution at St. Joe County Fairgrounds each spring.
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
Creating, restoring, and maintaining habitat is a constant battle. We invite you to join the St. Joseph County Michigan Pheasants Forever 615 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.
Local Chapter Projects
Every year the St. Joseph County Michigan Pheasants Forever 615 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.
