Black Swamp Chapter of Pheasants Forever receives Ohio MVP Award


FORT JENNINGS — The local Black Swamp Chapter of Pheasants Forever was recently honored with the Chapter MVP Award at the Pheasants Forever State Meeting held Feb. 6 in Columbus.

According to a news release, this award is in recognition of the time, talent and energy the club spent supporting the mission of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever in Ohio in 2015.

This past year, the club hosted its first Youth Pheasant Hunt in conjunction with Kalida Fish and Game with more than 70 youths participating, supported the Leipsic game club with its fishing derby, and held youth events at the Kalida Fish and Game Extravaganza and The Fort Fest in Fort Jennings.

The club also partnered with Jennings schools to plant a pollinator plot, three additional habitat plots, 200 pine trees and 800 feet of split rail fence to create an “outdoor learning lab.”
