CORAOPOLIS, Pa. — The Ruffed Grouse Society & American Woodcock Society are excited to announce a new corporate partnership with onX Hunt. onX Hunt is a mapping app that enables users to know where they stand, and features multiple disturbance layers where grouse and woodcock thrive. The onX Hunt partnership will directly contribute to the RGS & AWS mission, supporting healthy forests, abundant wildlife, and conservation ethic in 2021. RGS & AWS will also work with onX to increase access and opportunity afield.
"We are thrilled to be partnered with the Ruffed Grouse Society and to support their mission of creating and maintaining healthy forest habitat for ruffed grouse and woodcock. From day one, onX has been dedicated to creating access opportunities, and through this partnership, we strive to support the common goal of helping hunters find quality places to recreate,” said Ben Brettingen, onX Hunt’s Wingshooting Manager.
The onX Hunt team keenly understands the importance of disturbance on the landscape for the benefit of wildlife; three of their top 10 most-used app layers in 2020 centered on forest disturbance. Similarly, members of RGS & AWS know all too well how that disturbance promotes forest diversity and fosters abundant wildlife. Both organizations share the belief that people who have off-the-beaten-path experiences are more likely to conserve those unique places.
“We are thrilled to welcome onX Hunt as our newest Corporate Partner with the Ruffed Grouse Society & American Woodcock Society,” said Mike Neiduski, Director of Regional Development at RGS & AWS. “Their commitment not only supports our mission, vision, and conservation delivery; this partnership also allows us to highlight the importance of forest diversity for wildlife and promote quality access.”
