About the Chapter

If the Susquehanna River Valley Chapter’s territory were a wheel, the hub would be considered Williamsport, but our scope of operation extends well beyond, reaching areas such as Mansfield (N), Berwick (E), Selinsgrove (S), and Mill Hall (W).

We embrace and strive to further the mission of the Ruffed Grouse Society to preserve the sporting traditions of our north-central Pennsylvania region by creating healthy forests for ruffed grouse and American woodcock and a large variety of other game and non-game wildlife through scientifically proven forest management practices. Our chapter strives to be the catalyst in habitat improvements made on regional public lands as well as increased opportunities for youth and new hunters to experience the outdoors.

We organize and run various habitat, hunting and fundraising activities including habitat days, youth days, conservation & sportsmen’s banquets, shoots, informational talks and membership meetings.

Some import funds we work to raise are for Pennsylvania’s Drummer Fund, funds earmarked by RGS for habitat projects across the the state. These funds are often at times matched or subsidized by state agencies and can also receive grant funding available to help projects like these. A raised Drummer Fund dollar is often much more than a dollar when it goes into the ground.

All mission and membership aspects are maintained and processed through the Society’s national headquarters in Coraopolis, Pa.
