Volunteers to help Okanogan Mule Deer
« on: February 03, 2015, 10:57:49 AM »
After the huge Okanogan fires the immediate worry was getting the deer through the winter. Fortunately it's been a mild winter and feeding hasn't been a major issue. The Mule Deer Foundation will be planting burned areas in the spring to help improve habitat for the future. The Washington for Wildlife board of directors have approved a plan to help by conducting fund raisers and organizing a list of volunteers to help with planting. 100% of money raised will be used to plant in the Okanogan and the Mule Deer Foundation will match every dolllar we donate. So if someone donates $5 then $10 of seedlings will be planted. Dan McKinley of the Mule Deer Foundation will be organizing the areas to plant and the work days.

Anyone who would like to volunteer a day to help plant this spring please add your name to this topic and feel free to send Dan your name and phone number. dan@muledeer.org

Dan will go down the list and contact possible volunteers each time a day is planned to plant seedlings. Not only will you be helping the deer, it should be a lot of fun getting together with fellow hunters.

:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

WFW's goal is to build a fund and put together a list of volunteers, Dan is the only one who needs your phone/email as he will be the person contacting members when it's time to help plant.

Are you planning on putting this on our Facebook acct.  If so I will share it and probably get a lot of participants that are local to Wenatchee.

If we get a group maybe we could set up a carpool up that way as well

Not that one person makes a difference but weekdays work best for us (3), and as im sure everyone can appreciate, the longer the notice the better.........just saying. ;)

We need to see if we can do a multi day seed and just do a camp.  Seed all day and hang out all night....repeat.   :tup:
