Submitted to Sumner Newscow â€” The Slate Creek Valley Ringnecks Pheasants Forever chapter is holding its second annual fundraising banquet on February 22, 2014 at the Community Building in Caldwell. The doors open at 5 p.m. with dinner served at 6 p.m. The event is open to the public and those interested in conservation, hunting, and wildlife are encouraged to attend.Travis Cook, Slate Creek Valley Ringnecks chapter president, said the banquet is the single most important fundraising event during the year. Everyone concerned with local ring-necked pheasants and wildlife populations in general is encouraged to attend. There will be good food, good prizes, and fun for the whole family.â€œWhen it comes to conservation, there are a lot of people out there who would like to make a positive difference in the restoration and preservation of farmland wildlife, but just donâ€™t know how to go about doing it,â€ Cook said. â€œSince our national organizationâ€™s inception in 1982, PF chapter members have planted 30 million trees, purchased 127,000 acres of upland and wetland habitat open to public hunting, and completed habitat projects on more than 5 million acres.â€â€œAttending a Pheasants Forever banquet is an excellent way to contribute to a good cause because our county chapter retains all of the money (exclusive of membership fees) we raise and uses this money for habitat work with farmers and landowners in our immediate area,â€ Cook said.According to Cook, the Pheasants Forever committee members will be calling on conservation-minded individuals in the county to help support the banquet.
