Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever’s Women on the Wing Initiative will inspire and provide opportunities for women to become engaged, dynamic conservationists. Women on the Wing will draw from our experience and passion to deliver local events designed to cultivate new sportswomen; connect women landowners, farmers and ranchers; and create a community of women dedicated to carrying on our upland traditions and the Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever mission.
Our Women, Wine & Wild Game events gather women that are interested in sustainable food sourcing, hunting, or who otherwise have an affinity for the outdoors. The events demonstrate the connections between land stewardship and opportunities to hunt wild game, while also fostering a greater understanding of the Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever mission. These events have been used to kick-off Women on the Wing chapters or to engage more women in the organization.
There are about 1 million women farmers and ranchers in the United States, owning one-third of all working lands. An additional 87 million acres are owned by non-operating women landowners. There is an opportunity to connect with women landowners and operators. Our Conservation Outreach programs engage landowners and operators through women-tailored conservation workshops and learning opportunities.
Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever works with the Women’s Food and Agriculture Network (WFAN) and drawing on shared experiences of providing conservation outreach. Through WFAN’s work, we know that women prefer to learn about conservation from other women in an informal “learning circle” format, and want to see themselves and their values reflected in outreach materials, expressed in non-technical language. The WFAN program serves women farmland landowners who are interested in learning more about conservation. Women Caring for the LandSM and Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever has been working to hold these events across several states including Illinois, Iowa, North Dakota and Wisconsin thus far.
Women on the Wing chapters have the same goals as traditional chapters. Volunteers are integral in our fight to protect wildlife and preserve our hunting heritage. Become involved in a Pheasants Forever or Quail Forever chapter today.
All our women’s efforts tie back to recruiting the next generation of hunter-conservationists, be it wingshooting clinics, learn to hunt events or Cast & Blast events, we’re passionate about providing women opportunities to get afield while educating them on the importance of habitat conservation.
