The workday planned for 3/18/17 has been CANCELLED and RESCHEDULED for 4/1 and 4/8.

The workday to create rabbit habitat, is now scheduled for Saturday 4/1 at the Farnsworth site If you would like to volunteer let us know. So we will know how many workers . We are bulding 15 brush piles, so it should not take as long as last year. I would like you at the site by 9 a.m. You must sign in on a volunteer sheet this year. You will be provided water during your work and a hotdog barbecue afterward.

If you have a chainsaw bring it along with gas and chain oil. If you do not have a chainsaw bring gloves and maybe handsaw of some kind to help with sawing limbs. Otherwise you can help make the brush pile while the chainsaw is cutting limbs.

All volunteers are needed again on 4/8 we will have a 2nd workday at the Huckleberry Circle site below:
The location is 1.5 miles west of M24 on Columbiaville Rd in Lapeer County. If you come from Columbiaville on Columbiaville Rd. it will be about 3.5 4 miles east of Columbiaville.

Look for Huckleberry Circle on the South Side of Columbiaville Rd. You will drive through the subdivision to the end of Huckleberry Circle.

2015 Formed a Partnership with Lapeer and St. Clair PF Chapters, Michigan DNR and Lapeer Conservation District...

 

Our grant request for Lapeer State Game area habitat project we submitted along with Lapeer and St. Clair chapters was approved for $44189, $5061 less than the requested $49250. 

Each chapter committed $2500 in cash to get the $44189 grant funding ( 5.9 :1 match). 

Chapter is working with the Lapeer Chapter of Pheasants Forever and partnered with Lapeer and St. Clair Chapters then submitted a request for a grant from the DNR to improve and increase the pheasant habitat in the Lapeer State Game Area. With the help of our PF Regional Rep , Bill Vander Zouwen we are planning to work with the Conservation District and the DNR to submit a grant request with the DNR, for habitat improvement. The desired result is to make a significant improvement to the pheasant habitat in an area that is available for public hunting.

I will continue to keep you informed of the progress, as we work on the project into the spring.

These are photos show our prelimainary prep work and the PF and Young Marines that volunteered to help with the project.
