Directors, Officers, Committee Members & Banquet Volunteers

Blue Earth County Chapter of Minnesota Pheasants, Inc.

A 501(c)3 non-profit conservation organization. Donations are tax deductible. All officers, board members & committee members are volunteers. All funds raised are spent on Blue Earth County Area Projects.

Since inception, through direct and cooperative efforts, the Blue Earth County Chapter of Minnesota Pheasants, Inc., has been directly involved with the acquisition and/or restoration of well over 3,000 acres. Our total commitment to land acquisitions alone is in excess of $1,000,000.00 – All right here in the Blue Earth County area! In our early years, the chapter provided assistance for tree planting projects totaling 8 rows or more, and cost shareded on numerous projects and well over 25,000 trees!  When Minnesota winters place harsh demands on wildlife, we have been there to provide thousands of bushels of corn to the public for feed. We are always on the lookout for land acquisition and restoration projects in the Blue Earth County area and would welcome your involvement.

All Blue Earth County Chapter Minnesota Pheasants, Inc., officers, directors & committee members are volunteers. Nearly 100% of all fundraising revenue goes directly into local projects.
