SCCCE is hosting a workshop on Wednesday, February 28th from 6 PM - 7 PM at the Seneca County CCE offices located at 308 Main Street Shop Centre (third floor) to explain how you can get free day old pheasant chicks to raise and release into the wild. This program is free and open to the public.
Come to this workshop and learn from staff from the Richard E. Reynolds Game Farm as they explain how the program works and give tips and ideas on successfully raising the day old chicks. The staff will also answer questions and give insights on what is required to make this program work for you.
Rearing pheasants is enjoyable and challenging and also a good teaching tool for youth. Releasing the pheasants offers fall hunting opportunities and pheasants are an enjoyable addition to a property. The cooperator program provides a means for youth and adults to learn about the husbandry and natural history of pheasants, with an incentive to expand areas open for public hunting and to improve habitat for grassland wildlife species.
Registration is required. Registration is requested by Monday, February 26th.
