Fun volunteer opportunities with Game and Fish:
We have scheduled two work days in September (probably the last for this grant project) for the Woody Ridge Wildlife Corridor Restoration project, funded by National Forest Foundation, Arizona Wildlife Federation, and Coconino Sportsmen. Please mark your calendars and spread the word. Flyers to come shortly – sorry for any redundant emails coming your way!
Saturday, Sept 22nd 8AM – 4PM: Clean up Budweiser Tank! This should be a fun, all-day affair with groups from NAU Forestry, Wildlife Society, and more. We will remove trash and rehab sites that have been badly degraded by off-roading and target shooting. We hope this will launch a conversation about long-term stewardship for this site. Getting there: (GoogleMaps recognizes Budweiser Tank) Bud Tank is ~9miles from downtown Flagstaff. Travel West on Old Rt 66, turn right onto West Naval Observatory Rd, continue onto Observatory Access Rd. We will sign the work site.
Saturday, Sept 29th 8AM – 4PM: Wildlife-friendly fence repair at the Arboretum. We will repair approximately 1.5 miles of fencing and add wildlife jumps, making it permeable to elk, deer, pronghorn, and other species. The Festival of Science will be in full swing, so come learn and volunteer at the same time. Signs near the Arb entrance will guide you to parking.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
