Want to talk to the PA Game Commission? Its Huntingdon office set to hold open house this month

08 March 2024- The Pennsylvania Game Commission invites the public to attend one or more of the upcoming open houses, the first of which is just a couple weeks away.

All three of these two-hour events, during which the public can interact with Game Commission staff and have questions answered, will be held at Game Commission Region Offices.

The first open house is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Southcentral Region Office, 8627 William Penn Hwy, Huntingdon, PA 16652.

Open houses provide an opportunity for the public to engage with Game Commission staff, one on one, about hunting and trapping issues and topics that might include law enforcement, wildlife disease, monitoring wildlife populations, pheasant stocking, habitat work, forestry practices or upcoming educational and outreach events. Those attending can stop by any time within the two-hour window. No formal presentations are planned.

Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans encourages hunters, trappers and others who are interested in wildlife to attend.

“Many people have questions about wildlife, hunting or Game Commission projects, and they might not know how to have them answered, or maybe they just want to talk to somebody about an issue and learn more about it,” Burhans said. “Attending a Game Commission open house is a great way to do just that. Our staff always is willing to help, and we often get as much out of these interactions as the public does. We hope to see you there.”
