This banquet is for ALL sportsmen and women, and our speakers will be covering habitat topics that are important to many game and non-game species. Additionally, we will be offering raffle and auction items that will be of interest to a broad range of outdoor enthusiasts from anglers, archers, and upland hunters to field trialers and big game hunters.
Ruffed Grouse Society membership is not required to attend the banquet or to purchase dinner tickets. All sportsmen are welcome as well as anyone interested in supporting healthy forests in Northcentral Pennsylvania by attending this fundraiser.
The dinner ticket will include hors-d’oeuvres, multiple entree and side options, dessert and a chance to win the evening’s door prize drawing. Special youth ticket pricing available.
Funds raised at this banquet will create much needed young forest habitat on public lands in our region. This scope of habitat work directly benefits deer, bear, turkey, grouse, woodcock, rabbit, and countless other game and non-game species of wildlife.
