Volunteer Clean Up / Brush Up Work Days Set for San Jacinto Wildlife Area August 18th and September 22nd

Tom Trakes, from San Jacinto Wildlife Area, advised that the next two volunteer work days for San Jacinto Wildlife Area would be Saturday, August 18th and Saturday, September 22nd.  These work day will be primarily to finish cleaning up the hunting area and to start brushing up the area’s blinds for the coming season.  Tom advised that volunteers should meet at the check station at 7:00 am and anyone coming out to volunteer should bring gloves, shovels and/or hoes, wire pliers and lots of water since it’s expected to be hot. Also, if anyone has access to palm fronds, they need a good supply of these, all they can get.  When it comes to palm fronds we can’t have too many so if you can bring some along, please do.  After the work is done we will get together at a local restaurant for a well-deserved lunch (each person responsible for their own bill).

In the meantime, if you have any palm fronds you want to donate you don’t have to save them for the work days.  You can call the SJ staff at the number below and make arrangements to drop them off before the work days.

Hopefully, we’ll have a good turnout so we can get the blinds brushed up for another waterfowl season.  As I always say, the more the merrier (and the less work for each person).

Also, if you do come out to help on the August 18th work day there’s a potential bonus as this is just 2 weeks before the opening of dove season.  The waterfowl side of the wildlife area will be opened for dove hunting the entire first weekend of dove season (Sept. 1 & 2).  Dove hunting will only be allowed on the Upland Game side of the Wildlife Area after opening weekend.  If you want to hunt SJ this would also be a good time to get a little scouting in for the dove opener while you lend a hand.  Just remember, if you do come out to hunt dove at San Jacinto it’s unleaded now, even for upland game on the wildlife area, NON-TOXIC SHOT ONLY!

Hopefully, we’ll have a good crew of volunteers for this one to get the blinds looking good for the upcoming season and another great year of duck hunting.
