Planting will occur on April 4th and 11th “rain or shine”. The area to be planted is important winter range for deer and elk and is located in the vicinity of Anderson Ranch Dam.
Volunteers should meet at the Mountain Home District office at 9:30 AM each day. The office is located at 3080 Industrial Way just off Highway 20 and just north of I-84.
Volunteers should bring outdoor work clothes, boots or sturdy shoes, gloves, shovels if they have them and a lunch. The Forest Service will have some planting tools available for those who do not have a shovel.
“This kind of help goes a long ways toward recovery of this very intense fire area and really contributes to helping wildlife species recover,” said Scott Bodle, District Wildlife Biologist. “The combined efforts of helpful citizens, agencies, ranchers and contractors will slowly bring the area back to its original state.”
Interested parties should contact Scott Bodle at 208-587-7849 or at firstname.lastname@example.org so he can get an estimate of the work parties.
