The Ravenna Conservation Club was founded in 1967. The
clubhouse was built by members on 20 acres of land donated by
one of the founding members.
Early club activities included managing a local walleye rearing
pond in cooperation with the DNR, running a competitive trap
league, with teams from the club winning several trophies
statewide, and building and maintaining muzzleloader and rifle
While the competetive trap league and walleye rearing operations
are no longer active, the club annually maintains many activities
to promote and enhance the outdoor experience in the local area.
Among these are planting brook trout in a local trout stream,
rearing and releasing pheasants into surrounding areas,
highwaycleanup, providing MUCC Tracks magazines and 500 pine
trees for children in the local school districts, and the Hunter
Safety program which is among the largest of it's kind in the
state. There are also non-competetive archery, trap, and
muzzleloader shoots held during the summer that are open to the
public. Other activities that the club hosts include the Michigan
Trapper Association's Annual Fur Sale each January, buck pole,
pancake breakfasts during January, February, and March, and our
annual Wildlife Banquet.
We also sponsor scholarships for children of members for MUCC
The clubhouse is available for rent
(see Rental and Calendar pages for cost and availability
as well as contact info).
