The 23nd annual banquet and fundraiser for Chinook Pheasants Forever will see some outstanding jewelry, sporting event tickets, fitness memberships, show tickets and wildlife art and home décor.

Guests will have the option to participate in many raffles packed with more than $20,000 of goodies, enjoy a delicious prime rib dinner and meet like-minded outdoor enthusiasts.
The event is Friday, March 6 at the Cypress Centre in Medicine Hat. Tickets are $100 per couple or $65 for a single. This ticket also includes a quarterly Pheasants Forever Journal magazine.
Pheasants Forever is dedicated to the conservation of pheasants and other wildlife through habitat securement, improvements and conservation, public awareness, education and land management policies and programs.
Habitat restoration and enhancement projects include planting trees, shrubs and grasses to create shelterbelts and grassy corridors for wildlife travel lanes and protective cover; planting good quality nesting cover for ground nesting birds; fencing out existing or newly planted habitat areas to promote growth and limit livestock access; developing riparian buffer zones; protecting cattail marshes for winter thermal cover and setting up winter food plots and emergency feeding stations as seasonal food sources.
Pheasants Forever is the only local conservation organization where all the money raised stays in the community. They receive no funding from government so this fundraising event is essential to the ability to continue the work.
They have planted more than 400,000 trees in the last 15 years and are working towards land acquisitions in Cypress County and Forty Mile County. Land acquisitions include Peigan Creek, East Hays, Silver Sage I, II and III, Ross Creek and Bull Trail with continued work towards a purchase in 2015.
