In 1982, a group of pheasant hunters saw the connection between upland habitat loss and declining pheasant populations. An organization dedicated to wildlife habitat conservation was needed, and Pheasants Forever was formed. Pheasants Forever’s mission work quickly garnered it a reputation as “The Habitat Organization,” a tagline the nonprofit conservation group uses proudly to this day.
The Cass County Chapter of Pheasants Forever has been active in planting and restoring native habitat in Cass County Michigan since 1998, during which time we have planted many hundreds of acres of prairie grasses and feed plots. Today we include a special emphasis on planting mixes for pollinators. We invite participation from people people of all ages and backgrounds to join us in preserving and enhancing our county's most valuable asset - our rural environment.
