2015 Formed a Partnership with Lapeer and St. Clair PF Chapters, Michigan DNR and Lapeer Conservation District...

 

Our grant request for Lapeer State Game area habitat project we submitted along with Lapeer and St. Clair chapters was approved for $44189, $5061 less than the requested $49250. 

Each chapter committed $2500 in cash to get the $44189 grant funding ( 5.9 :1 match). 

Chapter is working with the Lapeer Chapter of Pheasants Forever and partnered with Lapeer and St. Clair Chapters then submitted a request for a grant from the DNR to improve and increase the pheasant habitat in the Lapeer State Game Area. With the help of our PF Regional Rep , Bill Vander Zouwen we are planning to work with the Conservation District and the DNR to submit a grant request with the DNR, for habitat improvement. The desired result is to make a significant improvement to the pheasant habitat in an area that is available for public hunting.

I will continue to keep you informed of the progress, as we work on the project into the spring.

These are photos show our prelimainary prep work and the PF and Young Marines that volunteered to help with the project.
