Second Volunteer Work Party at San Jacinto Wildlife Area a Big Success

Saturday, 8/29/16, about 13 volunteers, Sportsmen that hunt San Jacinto Wildlife Area, were on hand bright and early at 0600 at the SJ Check Station parking lot prepared to assist the staff in getting the San Jacinto ready for the fast approaching 2016/17 duck season.

Many thing were accomplished this Saturday morning.  The volunteers cleaned up around the check station office and restrooms and cleaned up the parking areas at the B and C ponds.  They also brushed up A-2 and took out the Salt Cedar in the C-3 and B-4 Blinds and also cleared path of travel down the levees.

Flooding of the wildlife area continues on most of the ponds and there are quite a population of waterfowl already on SJ.

After the work party, about half of the volunteers met at Casa Mexicana Restaurant for a well-deserved, and delishous, lunch break.

A lot of work was accomplished by a much smaller group then the last work party.  As always this work goes a long way to help San Jacinto Wildlife Area to maintain the high quality of hunting experience for the hunting public.   Tom advised me that yet another work party day at San Jacinto is going to be scheduled, probably for late September to do a little “fine tuning” at SJ prior to the season opener.  Check back with SoCalHunt often for that announcement, and, of course, I’ll get a blog post out on that as soon as the date is set.

For information on the upcoming blind brush up day, or to donate more pam fronds (they can always use them), at San Jacinto Wildlife Area you can call the refuge office at 951-928-0580 or Tom Trakes 951-236-3040.

Again I would like to extend my personal thanks to all the volunteers that came out and worked so hard.  I was actually planning on attend this work party (really I was) but my new grandson decided to make his appearance into the world a couple weeks early.  I am thankful for the volunteers, once again, for picking up my “slack”.  I truly appreciate the work that the volunteers do and I know the San Jacinto staff appreciates it also.
