Another Successful Blind Brush-Up Day At San Jacinto Wildlife Area

Saturday, September 28th, a record number of volunteers turned out to help out with the volunteer blind brush-up day at San Jacinto Wildlife Area.  Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area reported that about 40 volunteers, consisting of hunters that utilize San Jacinto arrived at 7 am and struck out to all corners of the refuge to complete their assignments.

This work party was primarily to clean out the area’s blinds and the get them brushed up and camouflaged for the upcoming season.  Many of the blinds had a bunch of tumbleweeds inside them and these were cleaned out leaving the blinds ready for use.  Some blinds were complete rebuilt by the volunteers.






Due to the number of volunteers they were able to make pretty quick and through work of brushing up and cleaning out the blinds.

After the work-day some of the volunteers met up at Casa Mexicana for a satisfying lunch.


The next event set for San Jacinto Wildlife Area is opening day of the waterfowl season on Saturday, October 19th!  Things are looking up for a great season.  Tom reports that the water is flowing and coming up in the ponds and a lot of birds are already using the area, including some speckled-belly geese.  There’s a lot of food on the wildlife area for the birds, which should help hold birds in the area and draw in more as the season progresses.

Hope to see you out at good old SJ.
