Habitat Improvement &
Wildlife Management Program
WE HAVE A PLAN AND GOAL.
The habitat improvement program will begin late February, 2018. We will provide you with information when the program commences.
Our plan was developed and put into motion 4 years ago.
This is our 5th year and we need membership involvement if we are to achieve the goal we set out to do. Our goal - to make our land more habitable for all wildlife.
Please become involved in the Stewardship of our land and get involved.
Call Josh Cunningham or see Bob Dunsey if you want to become involved in a great program and help give back to our favorite sport.
Consider joining us and help improve habitat to benefit wildlife.
WE SURE CAN USE YOUR HELP.

DUCK NESTING BOXES
New nesting material will has been added to the wood duck boxes for the upcoming breading season. Lets hope our efforts make a difference.
14 boxes installed, 13 were used for a 93% usage rate. Of the 13 duck boxes used, 10 successfully hatched for a 77 % hatch rate. I have 5 boxes to re-install and will replace the nesting material for the 2018 breeding period in February 2018. If you are interested in helping I would love the help and company.
