The Susquehanna River Valley chapter’s Future of Forestry raffle helps young forest dependent wildlife in northcentral Pennsylvania (on public lands) and the area forestry students that help us create it.
We’re raffling off a CZ 920 in 20 gauge, a Stevens 320 in 20 gauge, and a Primos Truth Trail Cam 46. There are three prizes, three winners, and only 170 tickets will be sold. Tickets are $10, winners do not have to be present at the public drawing to claim their prize, they will be contacted if not in attendance.
How the 2018 Future of Forestry raffle proceeds will be used:
The raffle proceeds will be used to fund, for its the second year, a scholarship for Penn College forestry student applicants who have volunteered or are actively volunteering in wildlife conservation or young forest habitat creation or management. Many of these students will go on to become state land managers and state foresters, and we think it’s vital to expose these students to the process of developing critical young forest habitat utilizing scientific management practices. The work project work days include lectures from state and RGS biologists on ruffed grouse and whitetail deer management, particularly as to benefit public lands.
Fall 2018 Update:
The Nettle Ridge Project is nearly a year ahead of schedule and grossly under budget, ruffed grouse and American woodcock have already been spotted and the woodcock photographed! The support given to this raffle has been the driving force behind this project.
