Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities recently delivered 500 pheasant eggs to Cameron County School District. Eleven classrooms at the elemen­tary school and one in the high school are incubating the eggs, which were delivered to the other classrooms by teacher Ben Porkolab’s third-graders. Seneca Resources and Tractor Supply of St. Marys provided financial support. Penn State Extension 4-H is also involved. The young pheasants will be released into the wild this fall.
