RGS PRESS RELEASE (REVISED effective Sept. 2, 2014 and Mar. 2, 2016)

Revised fee structure:** You have two options: A sequentially-numbered plate is available for a one-time fee of $60, and a personalized plate is available for $160. Each Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) license plate option provides $31 $29 to RGS - money that will help restore and protect grouse and woodcock habitat, providing them with food, cover from predators, shelter and a place to breed and rear their young. For each option, $4 $6 will be sent to the Pennsylvania Correctional Industries for shipping, and the remaining proceeds will go to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

**The price had been REDUCED (from $54 to $45 effective July 17, 2014 for sequentially-numbered plates), and RGS was passing along the savings to our members but the PA legislature passed Act 109 changing the fee organizations like RGS owe PennDOT from the reduced $11, originally $20, up to $25 necessitating the increase as of Sept 2, 2014.

Coraopolis, PA -- Pennsylvania’s estimated 134,000 upland bird hunters, along with thousands of others who prefer hunting this magnificent game bird with camera and binoculars, have a unique opportunity to turn a sizeable portion of their vehicle registration fee into the restoration of habitat by ordering a specially-designed Pennsylvania Ruffed Grouse Society License Plate.

You have two options: A sequentially-numbered plate is available for a one-time fee of $45, and a personalized plate is available for $145. Each Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) license plate option provides $30 to RGS - money that will help restore and protect grouse and woodcock habitat, providing them with food, cover from predators, shelter and a place to breed and rear their young. For each option, $4 will be sent to the Pennsylvania Correctional Industries, and the remaining proceeds will go to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

*The price has been REDUCED (from $54 to now $45 effective July 17, 2014 for sequentially-numbered plates), and RGS is passing along the savings to you.

The specialty plates make a unique and lasting Christmas gift and are a good way for sportsmen and other conservation-minded people to show other motorists that they care about conservation efforts and are helping in every way they can. This partnership between RGS and the State of Pennsylvania benefits ruffed grouse, American woodcock, the more than 80 species of songbirds, and other species and also provides additional funding to the State.
