Date Set for Volunteer Blind Brush-Up / Touch-Up at San Jacinto Wildlife Area

Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, advised that they have scheduled one final volunteer workday at San Jacinto Wildlife Area. This will be a workday to fine tune and touch up the previous work on the blinds done on the last volunteer blind brush-up day. The date is Saturday, September 27th. Volunteers are asked to gather at 6:30 AM at the SJ Check Station Parking Lot. The main focus of this workday is to finish up the brushing up of any of the blinds that might still need it and to, in general, just make sure the wildlife area is in great shape. Tom advised that anyone coming out to volunteer should bring gloves, shovels and/or hoes, fencing/wire pliers and lots of water, since it is expected to be hot. Also sunscreen and mosquito repellent are suggested as good ideas. The mosquito repellant being especially important now, from what I understand. Also, since the ponds are well into the flooding process, waders will be a good idea. After the work is done we will get together about noon at Casa Mexicana Restaurant for a well-deserved lunch (each person responsible for their own bill).

Hopefully we’ll have as good turnout as the last couple work days and be able to, in effect, “customize” the blinds to assist in making the upcoming season exceptional. As I always say, on the workdays, the more the merrier (and the less work for each person). If you have access to palm fronds please bring as much can for use in helping to detail out the brushing of the blinds. (see the flyer below for the proper type of palm fronds – don’t bring any with the thorns on them, not good for our waders).

As has been on the previous workdays a good turn out will help get things in exceptional shape at San Jacinto and we’ll all look forward to an outstanding season of duck hunting.

If you have any questions contact Tom Trakes at the San Jacinto headquarters at (951) 236-3040.
