This property is a real gem! stated Barry Jones, a former Land Management Supervisor for the Pennsylvania Game Commission, about a two-mile stretch of the Little Schuylkill River in Schuylkill County. Soon after, Wildlife Forever joined an effort to acquire the 1,510-acre property, doubling the size of a State Game Land area open for public use. The river has pristine trout water and has been listed as one of Pennsylvania’s most scenic rivers. The Game Commission has improved the habitat through forest management, with an emphasis on increasing the wild turkey, grouse and deer habitat. The land is home to many other species as well, including numerous species of waterfowl, the great horned owl, black bear, and red and gray fox.
