Fall brings seed collecting on the prairie. In the next few weeks, hundreds of students will work with Wayne Pauly (County Naturalist) and Pheasant Branch volunteers to collect seeds. The County has mowed some trails for the harvest, so it's a great opportunity for you to walk into areas that are hard to get to the rest of the year. We've attached a map of these seasonal trails. Enjoy!
"Like" us to hear about Conservancy events and updates. You'll see highlights from our Conservancy Day Programs, school field trip events, restoration activities, and the natural wonders of the Pheasant Branch Conservancy. Please spread the word!
Who do you GoodSearch and GoodShop for? Use this online search engine to help protect and restore the Pheasant Branch Conservancy! How does using the internet help protect the environment, you ask…
GoodSearch is a search engine (powered by yahoo, so it’s a good one) that donates money to a user specified non-profit each and every time a search is performed. The money comes from advertisers. If 100 FOPB members search twice/day for an entire year, we would earn $730 a year.
GoodShop is connected to many online retailers, such as Amazon and Best Buy. The user selects a non-profit and the retailer donates a percentage of the sale. If you make online purchases, please check to see if the retailer is a part of this socially responsible website.
We need your support to keep our restoration and education efforts going strong. Start using GoodSearch and GoodShop today – remember to check the Friends of Pheasant Branch as the non-profit.
