This is from Jessica Gist at AZ Game and Fish.
From all of us at Centennial Forest, Arizona Game & Fish, Arizona Wildlife Federation, and Arizona State Land Department, we want to thank all of the volunteers who came out to clean up Budweiser Tank on Saturday. We managed to fill two 20-yard dumpsters and several more garbage bags full of trash from the tank area, makeshift camp sites, and three illegal shooting sites. Great work!
For those interested in helping out with our final work day of the season, we will meet at the Arboretum on Woody Mountain Road at 8AM this Saturday, September 29th. We will repair over one mile of fencing around the Arboretum property. Learn how proper fencing techniques can minimize the negative impacts of wildlife and allow animals safe passage in and out of the meadow. This project will improve more of the Woody Ridge Wildlife Corridor, Coconino County’s most critical movement area for wildlife. We will provide tools, work gloves, and materials. Please bring a lunch, water, sunscreen, and bug spray (if desired). Long pants and sturdy shoes are essential. To reach the Arboretum, drive west on Route 66 from town and turn left (south) on Woody Mountain Rd. Signs indicate the Arboretum is 4 miles down Woody Mountain Road.
Again thank you all for participating in the Woody Ridge Wildlife Corridor improvement project this summer. We hope you will spread the word for this final event and join us if you are able.
