The future looks bright for Carbon and Emery county's upland bird habitats. A new Pheasants Forever chapter has been formed in Carbon and Emery County. The program is a non-profit conservation organization which was formed in 1982 in response to the continuing decline of ring-necked pheasants. Nationwide, the organization has grown to more than 90,000 members.

The new Carbon/Emery Pheasants Forever chapter will be different from other conservation organizations in that local chapters retain all of the money raised at annual banquets, exclusive of membership fees, and use those funds for local habitat restoration projects.

Restoration of upland habitat is needed because the pheasant is threatened by an almost continued assault on the environment. Nesting cover is destroyed prematurely, winter cover is bulldozed, too few crops are left standing to provide birds with a good food source to help them survive the winter months.

The Carbon/Emery chapter will raise funds to restore pheasant habitats through fundraising activities. The first of which will be a banquet held at the Holiday Inn Nov. 9. The cover charge for the event will then be used to begin the restoration projects.

For more information about the new Carbon/Emery Pheasants Forever chapter, contact Jon Gordon at 472-8888.
