San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s September 10th Volunteer Clean Up / Brush Up Work Day in the Books

About 10 volunteers showed up in the early morning light on Saturday, September 10th at the SJWA check station parking lot for the second volunteer clean-up/blind brush-up workday for the upcoming season. This workday was to finish any repair, touch up, clean up, and brush up of any of the hunting area’s blinds that still needed it. Flooding of the ponds is well underway and there are already many ducks using the Wildlife Area. The volunteers were able to get just about everything that needed to be done accomplished so it looks like San Jacinto is almost ready for opening day. As usual, some of the volunteers retired to Marcello’s Pizza Restaurant in Nuevo for a well-deserved lunch.

As always palm fronds are still needed for the blinds at SJWA. There are always a few blinds that need some repairs taken care of throughout the season. Having the palm fronds on hand makes that easier for the SJWA Staff. If you can bring in any palm fronds you can drop them off at San Jacinto almost any time. Just call Tom at 951-236-3040, or the San Jacinto staff at 951-928-0580, and they’ll make arrangements so you can drop them off. Please make sure you don’t bring in the type of palm fronds with the thorns on their stalks unless you’re willing to strip off the thorns first. Those things wreak havoc with waders if the thorns aren’t removed.

As always, Tom and the crew at San Jacinto would like to give a massive thank you to everyone that came out and worked hard to help get things dialed in for the fast-approaching waterfowl season.

For the near future, it looks like the next “official event” at San Jacinto will be opening day on Saturday, October 22nd. If you haven’t already done so it’s time to get your license, duck validation, federal duck stamp, type “A” day, 2 day, or season pass so you’re all legal and ready to go for the opener. Clean last year’s mud off your decoys, get your gear in ship shape, and make sure you have your non-toxic ammo. Hopefully we’ll see you out there sometime this season.
