RGS & AWS Annual Reports


The Ruffed Grouse Society and American Woodcock Society publish an annual report. These have changed through the years but newer versions include annual and cumulative mission highlights, conservation policy recap, a full listing of its Life Sponsors, Centurion members and annual sponsor donors, Gullion Circle-level donors, and chapter fundraising banquet and national financial information.

Starting in 2005, the report was converted into an online PDF version that is available not only to its sponsors but all members and site visitors. Printed versions are now mailed to RGS and AWS Life Sponsors. Printed copies of its Report to Sponsors were printed and mailed to its sponsor members from 1981 through 2004.

2015 -- RGS 2015 Annual Report **

RGS and AWS 2015 Annual Report

The new RGS 2015 Annual Report includes annual and cumulative mission highlights, conservation policy recap, a full listing of its Life and annual sponsor level members, Gullion Circle-level donors, chapter fundraising banquet and national financial information, as well as brief historical notes. RGS is focused on being a top-notch communicator by informing members of our progress in 2015. RGS and AWS significantly progressed in 2015 making essential strides in enhancing the future of young forests.

As RGS moves further into its second 50 years, RGS' campaign to improve young forest wildlife habitat was supported by generous financial contributions from its members, sponsors and donors. RGS continues to depend on our members' commitment to pursue our long range goals and this dedicated assistance continues as one of the Society’s major strengths. RGS' gratitude to its many generous members and volunteers who continue to provide, their time, effort and money to move the organization forward is overflowing. We are especially thankful for all the Society Sponsor members listed in this report, who contribute over and above the basic membership level to allow RGS' pursuit of its mission. We continue to be grateful to all who have made the Society’s cause their own for the past 54 years and to all who will be a part of the Society’s forest wildlife habitat improvement campaign in the future. RGS again acknowledges, with this 2015 Annual Report, the continuing role of a special group, our sponsors and other major donors, that is such a major source of precious resources.

The annual recognition list of Gullion Circle members and those in the Golden Aspen, Silver Birch and Bronze Maple Rings who are contributing their way into the inner Circle of RGS' top lifetime contributors appear on page 21. The 2015 Annual Report is available as a full color PDF document.
