South Metro Denver Chapter of Pheasants Forever and Occidental announce a project partnership!

The purpose of this partnership is to support, with both financial and volunteer resources, South Metro’s habitat and pollinator projects at Barr Lake State Park. Oxy is committed to community projects that help wildlife habitat and education of their communities regarding the importance of wildlife in our ecosystems. Barr Lake, another of SMPF’s partners, excels in wildlife husbandry and community outreach/education on the importance of protecting wildlife.

This is a great alliance for wildlife, SMPF, Barr Lake and Occidental. Welcome to the team!!

Telbe Storbeck, Occidental Denver’s Advocacy Advisor (at left); Michelle Seubert, Head Ranger at Barr Lake State Park; and Mel Wernimont, South Metro PF Habitat chair; met June 12 at Barr Lake Pollinator plot. Michelle and Mel showed Telbe the progress to date and reviewed plans for the next steps. Exciting to see the sunflowers growing and the new plants beginning to flower. More planting in July!!

Leave No Trace

South Metro Pheasants is honored to help support Barr Lake State Park in obtaining their Leave No Trace Gold Standard site designation. This gold standard designation was achieved by implementing and enhancing education outreach, signage and messaging for encouraging people to care for their public lands.

Pollinator Project at Barr Lake State Park – May 22, 2021

Pheasants Forever and Barr Lake Expand Pollinator Plot

On Saturday, May 22, a consortium of Barr Lake State Park, Pheasants Forever, Occidental Petroleum and Wildland Restoration Volunteers hosted the Black to Nature Book Club at Barr Lake for a three-hour event.

The focus of this event was twofold: First, the group, guided by PF and Wildland volunteers, and taught by Michelle Seubert, the head park ranger, learned the importance of and the technique of planting pollinator plants. The second focus was getting the job done! Serviceberries, goldenrod, and sunflowers—LOTS of sunflowers. The planting was fun and exciting. The pictures are worth a thousand words! Those displayed here show the group learning the importance of the pollinators and their habitat, getting hands-on training in planting, and gathering to celebrate their success.

A special thanks to the team of planters, the training and guidance of Wildland Restoration volunteers, the expertise of Michelle and the Barr Lake staff, and the financial support of Occidental Petroleum!! What a great day.

South Metro PF Annual Banquet 2020 – POSTPONED

PLEASE NOTE!!!

Dear members and supporters of South Metro Pheasants Forever

This morning during Governor Polis’s 3/13/2020 press conference, he instituted a ban on gatherings of over 250 people, if those events cannot guarantee separation of 6 fee or more between participants. You can find more information here: https://www.denverpost.com/2020/03/13/colorado-coronavirus-polis/

With the nature of our event and the size of the meeting space (e.ge., service of concessions and food, game play, auctions), it makes it impossible to guarantee 6 feet of separation. As a result, our chapter has “postponed” our annual banquet until the ban is lifted. We will keep everyone updated on when the new date is set.

Thank you,

David King, President
