“Last year from our banquet we raised $22,000 for habitat and wildlife conservation/preservation,” Brad Luckey, Doublebeards treasurer said. “As the local NWTF chapter, we continue to be able to provide funds for the NWTF and we can apply those funds to be used in habitat projects in the local area.”

Luckey encourages anyone wanting to help with their mission, to attend the banquet to learn more.

“I encourage people to join our flock’,” Luckey continued. “You can’t make things happen without getting involved.”
