Our Friday, September 6 project in the Gratiot-Saginaw State Game Area marks the end of our OTG projects for the 2019 fiscal year. After this, we will host some OTG Jr. events with local schools before our field season quiets down for the approaching hunting seasons. Come out and help us wrap up another successful season of wildlife habitat improvement! As with all OTG events, we will provide free lunch and t-shirts to all volunteers.
The goal of this project is to improve water quality and flow through the wetland by removing woody brush from along the edges of the dikes. A popular destination for a variety of hunters and recreationists, this area has become overrun with woody brush that is preventing user access to the area and the dikes from being maintained. This will enhance habitat for waterfowl and furbearing species, and the stacked woody brush will serve as habitat for a variety of other wildlife species.
Time: 9 A.M. – 2 P.M.
Location: Meet at the old DNR headquarters within Grat-Sag SGA at 13350 S. Meridian Rd, Ashley, MI 48806 (43°13’29.8″N 84°22’07.8″W). We will continue to the project site from there.
