The Grand River Longbeard’s Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation will be hosting their Hunting Heritage Banquet-Dinner at the Ionia Knights of Columbus Hall located at 115 S. Steele St. in Ionia on March 14th.
Doors open and games/raffles/activities start at 5:00 PM. Dinner starts at 6:30 PM.
We look forward to a bigger and better banquet this year. There will be several great gun raffles and many other games and prizes as well as the live and silent auctions. We have over $15,000 in Guns & Prizes this year! The future on hunting depends on you!
Our programs focus on wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife and the protection and enhancement of our unique habitat & hunting/shooting heritage. The latter distinguishes the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) from other conservation focused organizations.
The NWTF works at the national and state levels but the majority of our work is done locally and in Michigan. Your involvement is critical to sustaining and improving wildlife habitat and the future of our hunting/shooting heritage. Our chapter annually gives a graduating high school senior a NWTF scholarship at our banquets. We have several of our members participate in our NWTF Conservation Seed Program to provide critical habitat on private lands to sustain wildlife. The chapter also does a lot of habitat work on state land habitat projects using a 40 to 1 match dollar grants!
