HARRISBURG, PA - The Pennsylvania Game Commission this fall is offering both a wild birds and a wildlife calendar to raise money for wildlife conservation among residents who normally don’t contribute to wildlife’s wellbeing in the Keystone State.
“It’s no secret, the overwhelming majority of Pennsylvanians whose lives are enriched by wildlife don’t have a chance to contribute toward its conservation,” explained Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans. “We’d like to change that by offering these calendars as a way for Pennsylvanians to get more excited about wildlife and contribute to its conservation.”
Make no mistake, every dollar raised for Pennsylvania wildlife conservation matters in an era when so many neotropical birds are in decline; when cave bats have lost up to 95 percent of their populations to white-nose syndrome; and when the state bird, the ruffed grouse, has been decimated by West Nile virus.
Each calendar is 10½ by 13 inches and printed on quality stock. Every month features an exceptional wild bird or mammal color photograph that will dress up any room, as well as timely tidbits on birds or wildlife to help you stay abreast of seasonal outdoor happenings.
“Our 2019 wild bird and wildlife calendars provide a way for more residents to contribute to Pennsylvania’s wildlife conservation,” Burhans explained. “It’s something just about every Pennsylvanian believes is important, yet only a fraction of us support monetarily. For the sake of wildlife, I hope that can change.”
To purchase Game Commission calendars, visit The Outdoor Shop, a Game Commission region office or a vendor who sells our calendars.
