Local Chapters Fulfilling Local Needs
Due to the unique structure of Pheasants Forever, our local chapters serve as the best resource for community involvement with anything related to wildlife or habitat. The following list serves as a simple guideline for the types of projects and services offered by Pheasants Forever chapters in the state of Iowa:
Food Plot Seed - Most chapters in the state are actively involved in the purchasing and distributing of food plot seed to local landowners, farmers and ranchers. Whether you are looking for a winter food source for upland game birds on your property or wanting to establish a piece of cover with multiple benefits to wildlife, Pheasants Forever and its local chapters in Iowa are an excellent resource. See our Food Plot Seed page for more details.
Native Grass Seed - Looking to establish a true piece of upland habitat on your property but don’t know where to start? Contacting your local Pheasants Forever chapter would be a great start! Going through the process of establishing native grass plantings can be both demanding on a person’s time, brain and pocketbook. Thankfully, Pheasants Forever chapters throughout the state of Iowa work closely with the Iowa Native Seed Program to ensure that you receive the most benefit out of your wildlife plantings. Helping you along the way with ordering seed, providing cost share and working with our habitat specialists to make your dream property a reality is all part of the Pheasants Forever experience. Contact your local chapter today to discuss future wildlife habitat opportunities!
Youth Hunts - Looking for an excellent way to get your children connected to the great outdoors in a fun, safe and nurturing environment? Contact your local chapter today and attend one of Iowa’s youth hunts with Pheasants Forever! Every year in Iowa, local chapters strive to create youth hunting opportunities for younger generations- with 50-75 youth hunts every year throughout the state, your kids are never far away from the experience of a lifetime!
Youth Programs - Chapters all across the Hawkeye state take a very active role in supporting youth programs within their county lines. Whether it is 4-H, high school shooting sports or other endeavors that could connect kids to the outdoors, chapters are a great resource for anyone looking to strengthen their youth programs through different types of support structures. In addition, chapters sponsor countless numbers of youth in our state for the Boy’s Hunting and Conservation Camp, as well as the Outdoor Journey Camp for girls.

Land Acquisitions - If you are a serious conservationist, you have probably had a thought at one time or another about what to do with your private property when you decide it is no longer needed. If you want to preserve a piece of property as well as realize some major tax benefits that could be included with the selling of your land, contact a Regional Representative or chapter today to discuss options regarding a Pheasants Forever land acquisition. We need your help to grow LOCAL wildlife habitat and conservations leaders today, tomorrow and….. FOREVER!
