This hunting season, 24-7 is partnering with Pheasants Forever for a month long fundraising campaign across its 10 locations to support conservation throughout the state to assist with improving the hunter’s experience and tourism for years to come.
Pheasants Forever is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of pheasants, quail and other wildlife through habitat improvements, public awareness, education and land management policies and programs. In 1982, a group of pheasant hunters saw the connection between upland habitat loss and declining pheasant populations leading to the organization’s start. It’s Pheasants Forever’s vision that current and future generations of hunters and conservationists are able to enjoy abundant populations of wild pheasants, quail and other wildlife. Wildlife habitat faces monumental challenges in an ever-changing world. Agricultural expansion, a growing population, water wars, urban sprawl and oil and mineral exploration are all threats to the habitats pheasants, quail and other wildlife call home.
24-7 is excited to partner with an organization that means so much to it’s customers and employees. Every year thousands of hunters travel to Kansas for pheasant hunting season and they often stop for fuel and food at 24/7 locations along the I-70 and I-135 corridors. Mark Augustine, president of 24-7 Travel Stores has been a member and supporter of Pheasants Forever for over 15 years and is passionate about their mission and conservation, as well as being an avid hunter. Plus, many of the staff members of 24-7 Travel Stores enjoy hunting, fishing, boating and the outdoors, making this partnership a perfect fit.
Donations are accepted at the register at all 24-7 Travel Store locations. You can also find authentic Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever apparel and merchandise at all of the 24-7 locations throughout the campaign which runs from November 3rd to December 2.
