Local Volunteers Receive National Recognition for their dedication to getting youth outdoors


Displaying NCLI Volunteers of the Year -- Ron and Ted Gilles from IL River Valley PF Chapter.jpgOn February 18 Ron and Ted Gilles of Princeville, IL received the Pheasants Forever No Child Left Indoor Volunteer of Year award at Pheasant Fest in Minneapolis, MN. For over 28 years, the Gilles Brothers have helped to deliver the organization’s mission: creating and improving habitat at a local level along with creating future conservationists through outreach programs. In 2016 alone, the Gilles brothers hosted over 500 local school children to their farm to learn about conservation. The brothers also hosted over 150 kids at youth hunts on their farm. The Ron and Ted Gilles are also active in helping to organize local hunter safety classes, youth dog training seminars and habitat farm tours.

Well done gentlemen!  Thank you for your work for Illinois and conservation efforts.

Remember Enjoy the Outdoors, Good Luck and Stay Safe
