HARRISBURG, PA – -(AmmoLand.com)- In its ongoing efforts to inform the public about work to improve wildlife habitats on State Game Lands, the Pennsylvania Game Commission website (www.pgc.state.pa.us) now features a “Habitat Happenings” section on the homepage.

“This new web feature focuses on habitat management practices used by the Game Commission to make lands more attractive and accommodating to wildlife,” said Carl G. Roe, Game Commission executive director. “Each week, agency land managers and foresters will present a new journal entry or report of their activities afield in an effort to showcase what they do for both wildlife and recreationists on State Game Lands and lands enrolled in the agency’s cooperative public lands programs.”

“The entries will help you appreciate the value of a dollar to wildlife managers and why lands for wildlife always need fieldwork. You’ll also get a feel for what happens on state game lands when you’re not there. It’ll be a real eye-opener for many folks.”

Roe noted that the contributing participants in the first phase of this new feature will be from the agency’s Southeast Region, which covers 13 counties in southeastern Pennsylvania. Within the region, there are five land management groups that are managed by land management group supervisors, foresters and members of the Food and Cover Corps.

“We encourage Pennsylvanians to check in weekly to see and learn more about how these groups – and many agency conservation partners – do their jobs and make a tremendous difference for wildlife and the folks who enjoy wildlife and wild places,” Roe said. “We certainly believe that this new feature will be of interest to those concerned about wildlife and the management of State Game Lands habitat, which is supported by funding from the Commonwealth’s hunters and trappers.”
