About the OHA Pioneer Chapter

OHA Mission: Protecting Oregon’s Wildlife, Habitat and Hunting Heritage

OHA Pioneer Chapter carries out the OHA mission through the following projects:

  • Duck Box Maintenance  –  Several times a year we make trips to various High Cascade lakes to check these boxes for use, re-supply nesting material as needed and repair or replace duck boxes that are damaged or deteriorated. If usage warrants we also install new boxes to accommodate rising duck populations. This is family oriented and children frequently join their parents on these trips. Duck Box usage is reported to ODFW.
  • Water Guzzlers – During the dry months (Summer and early Fall), we make sure that water guzzlers provide water for Central Oregon wildlife. Beginning with our Annual Family Campout, we send work parties to prepare the water guzzlers for the upcoming dry season.  Monthly inspection trips, hauling water to the guzzlers that are low and survey for wildlife usage follow the campout. We repair any damage, fill with water and check the bird nesting boxes located on posts around the perimeters. Bird box usage is also reported to ODFW
  • Habitat Restoration Projects: Some of our members participate in habitat restoration projects at Murders Creek and Harts Mountain each year.
  • Hunter Education – We support the next generation of hunters through our Annual Youth Day at Canby Rod and Gun Club and Hunter Education courses throughout the year.
  • Scholarships – The chapter also sponsors two scholarships. Click here for Application Information. Applications are due June 30th , 2023
