Pennsylvania Backcountry BBQ & Campout

Please join the Pennsylvania Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers for a Backcountry BBQ & Campout. This will be an opportunity for BHA members (and prospective members) and their families to get to know each other, discuss Pennsylvania BHA topics, and enjoy our public lands with a hike and other outdoor activities for kids and adults alike. In order to leave our public lands better than when we found them, we'll also pitch in on a service project or cleanup in cooperation with park managers during our stay. 

We'll also discuss the Land and Water Conservation Fund- a critical conservation tool set to expire September 31 unless Congress acts- and visit facilities at Ricketts Glen built with LWCF funds. Click Here to learn more about LWCF.

While supplies last, attendees will be able to purchase raffle tickets for a Savage Axis II 6.5 Creedmoor with a Nikon scope. Only 100 tickets will be available at $20/ticket. We’ll also have BHA merchandise for sale. 

There is no cost for this event.

Please RSVP with the number of adults and children attending with you to [email protected] by September 8, 2018.
