San Jacinto Wildlife Area Second 2015 Volunteer Blind Brush-Up Day Coming Up – 9/26/15

Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, wanted me to remind everyone that the second volunteer “blind brush-up” work-day for San Jacinto Wildlife Area is coming up on Saturday September 26th.  Volunteers are asked to gather at 6:30 AM at the SJ Check Station Parking Lot. This work-day will concentrate on brushing up the blinds that still need it and any repairs to old blinds that may still need attention. 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. In addition, some of the blinds are already surrounded by water, so bring waders also so work can be done on these blinds too. As always for this time of year, sunscreen and mosquito repellent are suggested as good ideas. After the work is done we will get together at Casa Mexicana Restaurant about noon for a well-deserved lunch (each person responsible for their own bill).

Hopefully we’ll have another good turnout like we had at the first work-day (thanks volunteers!) as there is still much work to get done so everything is ready for the coming season. As always, when it comes to work days, the more volunteers the better (meaning less work for each person).  Also, if you have access to palm fronds please bring as much can for use in brushing the blinds. (see the flyer below for the proper type of palm fronds – don’t bring any with the thorns on them, also know as wader ripper palm fronds).

Even if you can’t come to the work-day(s) if you have palm fronds that you’d like to donate prior to the work-day(s), and can drop them by SJ, that would be appreciated.

A good turn out for this second work-day will help finish getting things in great condition for the coming season at San Jacinto

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