Duck hunters want/need to help restore waterfowl habitat?

Postby Orlanda » Tue May 13, 2008 12:23 pm

I'm looking for volunteers near Vancouver, WA to help me pull a Class A noxious weed (WA State) out of our wetlands on the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. Ricefield Bulrush takes over wetlands and destroys plants needed for food & cover.
NO HABITAT = NO BIRDS = NO HUNTING

Hunters are important supporters of the RNWR and we'd like to keep them hunting here. If anyone is interested or has suggestions on how to find people - please let me know. Whether it's a group or one person - everyone is welcome to help. Great birding while you're at it. :smile:

Always interested in that stuff. When and where? Anything organized?

Though I'm not active with a particual group, DU could probably help organize a work party.
Life is too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

Join WWA to save the sport. Ask me about it. http://www.waduck.org

The Lower Columbia Chapter of the Washington Waterfowl Association would be good source for possible volunteers:

Nothing against DU (I've been a member for over 30 years), but WWA is a more members' hands on, local project organization.

The website has some info listed, but I can email (if you want) you a 1 page summary of the project with dates and everything. Email me if you would like that.

It's under "volunteer opportunities".
Open work parties every Sat. starting June 28th or sooner from 9-1. Groups or individuals are more than welcome to schedule times during the week or can stay longer on Saturdays. If someone wants to work, I'll be there.
If you know any hunters who need service hours to obtain advanced hunter privileges, let them know about this. The hours count.
Thanks for the interest!

Orlanda, you had a typo in your web site address so I repaired it for you. If anyone wants to go straight to the volunteer page, the web address is http://www.fws.gov/ridgefieldrefuges/Volunteers.htm
