Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have put a ciriculum together to get the youth involved in habitat preservation. Pollinating insects are crucial to the survival of not only habitat for upland game, but they also pollinate plants that are consumed by by the human population.
A short video about the Youth Pollinating program can watched on YouTube by clicking the following link.
Today (September 23, 2014) Kjerstad Habitat will be at an open house at Pindedale Elementary in Rapid City to answer questions about the pollinating project that was put in at the school this past summer. Open house is 3:30-6pm. Should have any questions, please feel free to attend!

All of the board and banquet committee members of your local Black Hills Pheasants Forever chapter would like to take a moment to thank everyone that attended last Saturday's event. We had a great time putting the fund raising banquet together and sure hope you all had just as much fun. (Secretly, we hope you had more!)
Our events could not be a success without the generosity shown not only by our sponsors - our heros, but also by those that attend and participate in the games, raffles and auctions. In case you didn't know, we LOVE to give firearms away! Mostly we love the look on peoples faces when they win them. We tip our hats in gratitude to all that supported the event!

Remember, all monies that we raise stay with your local chapter to be dispersed as we see fit for pheasant and other upland game habitat, public access, education and youth mentoring activities.

The banquet committee of this year's annual fund raiser is eager to announce that a liver colored springer spaniel puppy will be offered on this year's live auction. Dave and Joyce Whittington of Whittington Springer Spaniel's have graciously donated one of their puppies to be part of our fund raiser. The puppy will be 8 1/2 weeks old at the time of this Saturday's (September 13th) auction.
Dave and Joyce plan to bring a couple of puppies to the banquet so high bidder will have choice of pup. The puppies will have received 2 sets of shots and Dakota Hills Vet Clinic will offer a free puppy check up as part of the package. Dave and Joyce own both the sire and dam. Springer spaniels are not only excellent gun dogs, but make fantastic family pets also.
If you have any questions about the puppies or would like information about purchasing additional pups after the auction, please contact Dave Whittington at 605.381.5470.
