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.

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.

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:

Depending on the date and if the camping thing gets set up, I'd be willing to make the multi hour drive to help plant and camp.

Posted on our facebook page, please feel free to share on your facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HuntingWashington

Dan will be organizing the work parties and he will be visiting the topics when he gets a chance and will see the suggestions. I'll let him explain how he envisions the work parties. Even if each plant only takes a day members could still plan an overnight camp out.
