Last weekend, a group of 18 volunteers including members from the Midland-Dow High Conservation Club, Boy Scouts from Troop 337, local hunters and trappers continued habitat maintenance in a wildlife opening in the Gratiot-Saginaw State Game Area. Volunteers removed encroaching brush from the wildlife opening and stacked it into large brush piles for rabbitat. The habitat work in this area began with a project the same time last year, at which volunteers focused on building brush piles with the larger trees that had been cut from the opening and along the perimeter. There is still a good amount of brush to remove from the north end of the opening, but a lot of progress had been made towards the goal of the areas DNR Wildlife Technician, Chad Krumnauer, to plant the opening as a food plot for the areas whitetail deer, turkey, and other small game.
The last chance for introducing MUCC conservation policy resolutions will be at the March 11 MUCC Conservation Policy Meeting at the Munising Township Hall in Wetmore, Michigan.
