Local Habitat Efforts
YouthRingneck Rustlers 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
Creating, restoring, and maintaining habitat is a constant battle. We invite you to join the Ringneck Rustlers Chapter 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 Ringneck Rustlers Chapter 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.
Grass Root Campaign
The Kansas Pheasants Forever representatives announced a large program this year to try and reclaim/increase the habitat in the state of Kansas. Our state is in danger of losing several hundred thousand acres of CRP ground by the year 2012. Our state leaders are using this new plan to try to combat this great loss. Over the next few years, Pheasants Forever will be trying to place 34 different Wildlife Biologists across the state of Kansas. Working with the states NRCS offices in a joint venture with Pheasants Forever, the biologists will have offices and vehicles supplied to them. NRCS will also match funds raised by Pheasants Forever to help fund the habitat work. The goal of all this is to have the biologists available locally to work directly with the land owners in each area to help them plan ways to utilize their ground and get the best conservation available.
Our chapter this year decided to donate $2500 to help get the first four biologists on the ground this year. Studies have shown that a chapter that works a habitat project will spend $15 to $20 an acre to improve habitat. Through different programs, the biologists can impact habitat restoration for around $2 an acre. We will be able to stretch our habitat dollars farther and be able to help protect our valuable habitat and CRP around the state.
