Some Game Commission’s offices remain closed due to the global COVID-19 outbreak. The Game Commission moved its April Board meeting to an online format in response, and thanks the public for its understanding and support. While the agency’s No. 1 concern, at this time, is protecting human health, it remains as committed and as passionate as ever to managing Pennsylvania’s wild birds, wild mammals, and their habitats for current and future generations.
