One Sunday afternoon, the Juniors got together and built 7 Duck boxes and about a dozen Blue Bird boxes in the lower level of the clubhouse. These will be placed in various locations, including several of our Save Our Streams, stream restoration projects!

On September 27th 2016, the Juniors celebrated the end of summer with a trip to Limestone Springs Fishing Preserve in Richland, PA. After our fishing trip the Juniors attended the National Hunting and Fishing Day Program at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area where they were able to shoot archery, test their skill safely shooting a rifle in a deer hunting simulator, learn about raptors and waterfowl, and taste some delectable roast venison provided by the Red Rose Izaak Walton League.
Jr's host/hatch out little Pheasant Birdies!
"We had 34 eggs that were incubated. They started peeping on Sunday, May 5. By Tuesday evening 1 chick had hatched. We divided up the eggs and took 19 to the Board of Directors meeting (it was meant to be 20 but in the excitement we miscounted) on Tuesday. During the BOD two chicks hatched. We made up 3 brooding set-ups for a few Juniors (Holly, Elizabeth, and David/Jocelyn) and their families to take home and share in the experience. Of our 34 eggs we ended up having about 15 hatch out, pretty good for a first try. We plan to hold the chicks at each Juniors house until Mother’s Day evening, when we will transfer them to the Pheasant coop.
"Here’s a time lapse of the pheasant eggs we hatched.
