Local Habitat Efforts

Inland Empire Chapter of Pheasants Forever's members are truly passionate about creating, preserving and restoring habitat that benefits pheasants, quail and other upland wildlife. This unique model empowers local chapters with the responsibility to determine how 100 percent of their locally-raised conservation funds will be spent.

Whether it's through improving habitat, informing the public about land management or educating future generations of hunting enthusiasts, conservation is the underlying principle in all we do at the grassroots level.

Preserving our Natural Resources

Preserving our Natural Resources

Creating, restoring, and maintaining habitat is a constant battle. We invite you to join the Inland Empire Chapter of Pheasants Forever of Pheasants Forever in its quest to ensure a country rich in natural resources and long on people willing to work to preserve them. After all, natural resources - pheasants, quail, and other wildlife, plus the land, air, and water on which they live - are our greatest resources.

Revere

Revere

The Revere Wildlife Area is over 2,300 acres of Palouse grassland and shrub-steppe scabland terrain with seeps and springs in the Rock Creek drainage.  The Inland Empire Chapter of Pheasants Forever has established 9 food plots with 4 more anticipated the spring of 2019.  These food plots target pheasants but will aid all wildlife in this area to survive the winter and give them a jump start advantage in the spring.  The Revere unit is located 9 miles southeast of Lamont in northwest Whitman County.  The unit can be accessed from Davis Road, off highway 23 south of Sprague.

Escures Ranch

In 2006 the Inland Empire Chapter 800 of Pheasants Forever in conjunction with the BLM coordinated a work project along Rock Creek to improve winter cover for unland birds. The project comprised of planting 350 shrubs and trees and installing a quarter mile of fence with two gates to protect newly panted shrubs and trees as well as established vegatation from cattle.

Packard Creek

Packard Creek

The Packard Creek unit is a 1650 acre parcel of land, that is managed by the BLM, and is located approximately 16 miles south of Sprague Washington on Highway 23. The success of this habitat project can be attributed to the strong partnership we have developed over the years with both both the Inland Northwest Wildlife Counci and the Puget Sound Chapter of Pheasant Forever. Both of these organizations have helped fund the habitat improvement on this site and have contributed countless hrs of volunteer labo. We also enjoy a strong partnership with both the with the BLM and WDFW who our actively involved in helping with resources and technical advise.

This will be the fifth year for the project in which we have planted over 2,500 shrubs and trees including Douglas Hawthorn, Choke Cherry, Wild Plum, Buffalo Berry, Wild Rose, Snow Berry, and Elder Berry. These shrubs and trees are protected with a 7' deer fence that is 2000' by 100'. We have also planted 20 acres of food plots that will be convereted into nesting and brood habitat once we get the weeds under control.

Please E-mail Mike Gruenke, our Habitat Chairman if you are interested in helping with this worthwhile project.
