Why Participate?

A National Voice Providing Local Results

Pheasants Forever’s unique grassroots model and chapter system is set up to vastly change the conservation climate for the better. But this can only happen with the support of people like YOU.

  • Are you passionate about hunting and habitat?
  • Do you want to give back to a tradition that has given you so many memories afield?
  • Do you want to make a difference for your local wildlife?
  • Do you want to leave a legacy for future hunters?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then you need to get involved. To put it simply, more Pheasants Forever members equal more acres of habitat, more birds, and more public lands to hunt.

Pheasants Forever members are making a difference by improving upland habitat and passing on the upland tradition to the next generation of conservationists.

Pheasants Forever is an effective and efficient organization with a solid reputation with landowners, lawmakers, and hunters alike. This has provided us with leadership roles at the highest levels of government all the way down to the local communities where conservation policy becomes wildlife habitat.

Our results since 1982:

  • Improved over 19 million acres of critical wildlife habitat, not to mention the benefits of cleaning our waterways and safeguarding our soils
  • Purchased more than 203,000 acres of upland habitat, all permanently protected and open to public hunting and outdoor recreation
  • Employed over 200 Farm Bill Biologists who are on the ground every day working one-on-one with landowners to benefit local wildlife habitat 
  • Advocated for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and the millions of acres of wildlife habitat and clean waters it represents
  • Mentored over 200,000 youth, educating and engaging the next generation of outdoor leaders and upland conservationists

Make a Difference in your Local Community!

Pheasants Forever’s unique system of fundraising and project development allows members to see the direct result of their contributions. In fact, chapters of Pheasants Forever determine how 100 percent of their locally raised conservation funds will be spent—making us the only national conservation organization that operates through this truly grassroots structure.

There are more than 700 chapters of Pheasants Forever across the country that are looking for new volunteers to contribute their time and talents to improve local wildlife habitat and introduce the next generation to upland habitat and hunting. Whether you can help one day a year or volunteer a few hours each month, there’s a place for you.

You are integral in our fight to protect wildlife and preserve the hunting heritage - help us continue on our path toward a future of habitat on the ground, birds in the sky, and youth in the fields. Find a local chapter TODAY.

Leave a Lasting Legacy

It’s no secret, conservation doesn't end with the current generation. If we don’t leave a legacy of upland conservation for future generations to follow then we have not only failed ourselves, but we’ve failed them as well. It’s our duty to not let the sun set on the values we are fighting to uphold—a future filled with roosters, bird dogs, and land stewards.
