Calling all San Juan County Waterfowlers!!!
The San Juan County chapter of Ducks Unlimited will be hosting a cleanup effort on the Quality Waters section of the San Juan River on Saturday, April 5. We will be meeting at the Texas Hole parking area at 9:00, and picking up trash along the river until around noon. The number of waterfowlers in the area has nearly doubled this year over last, and unfortunately, most of these new hunters don't realize that empty shells are in fact, trash. The Quality Waters are a valuable resource, and it is important for us as waterfowlers to let the community at large know that we appreciate the privilege of hunting there. Complaints by fly fisherman regarding empty shells, and trash in general, left primarily by duck hunters have skyrocketed this year, causing the Game and Fish, as well as the Parks Department, to take notice. If we aren't proactive in letting people know how much we, as avid waterfowlers, value our hunting grounds, then we may lose access to this section of the river. Let's all pitch in, and show everyone how important conservation really is! For more information, please PM me, and I'll fill you in on any additional details I may have left out.
Sorry folks, park's closed...
