Wildlife for Everyone Foundation Poised for Future Expansion

State College, Pa – The Wildlife for Everyone Foundation is pleased to announce a change in its management. The Foundation’s recent growth and the wish to expand beyond central Pennsylvania has necessitated a change in its operations.

Foundation President, Jerry Regan, whose term is expiring, will be appointed to a seat on the Board of Directors, where he will oversee and chair the new $1.8 million Wildlife Center project, planned for groundbreaking in the summer of 2019. He will also continue to support various committees to ensure a seamless transition to the new management structure. “Jerry has been an invaluable asset to the Foundation as president and committee chair for the last two years, and we look forward to his continued involvement as a board member,” comments Russ Schleiden, chairman of the Wildlife for Everyone Foundation Board.

The Executive Committee of Wildlife for Everyone Foundation is initiating a search for a new Executive Director and will be releasing that information in the near future. "We plan to fill that position in the next 90 days," Schleiden advised. 

The vision of Wildlife for Everyone Foundation is to be the leading advocate for wildlife conservation in Pennsylvania.  The Foundation was formed in 2004 to provide all wildlife enthusiasts with a way to show their commitment through much-needed financial support for wildlife conservation efforts and education. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised millions of dollars to support projects including wildlife and wetland habitat improvements, creek and lake restorations, the Seedlings for Schools program and student educational opportunities. The Foundation's mission connects all wildlife and nature enthusiasts to the great outdoors, including birders, hunters, anglers, students, and everyone with an appreciation for nature's treasures. For more information, visit:
