  • Habitat Day

    • Saturday, August 05, 2017 at 09:00 AM
    • Maple River State Game Area
    • $10.00 USD
    • 73 people are going

    Have you seen pheasants lately? Would you like to see more deer, turkeys and ducks when you are hunting? The secret is having high quality habitat.

    Maple River State Game Area is home to healthy populations of pheasants, deer, ducks and turkeys thanks to intensive habitat management coordinated by the Department of Natural Resources and many partners. The efforts have not only increased game species, but have also increased the numbers of songbirds, pollinators, and other wildlife.

    At 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 5, a joint-partner Habitat Day will be held at the Maple River State Game Area, near St. Johns, Michigan.This full-day workshop will teach landowners to manage their own property for popular game species including deer, pheasants, wild turkey and waterfowl. Space is limited, and a $10 pre-registration is required.

    The event will include educational sessions, demonstrations and tours of grassland, wetland and forest wildlife habitat. Partners for the event include MUCC, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Pheasants Forever, Quality Deer Management Association, Ducks Unlimited, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Conservation Districts and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  

    Habitat Day will kick off with presentations offering a wide range of methods and techniques for sustaining and managing habitat. The keynote speaker for this event, Dr. Craig Harper, is a professor at University of Tennessee, with a focus on wildlife and early successional management -- grasslands and shrub vegetation.

    Lunch will be available to purchase from food trucks set up at the site. Following lunch, participants will be broken up into groups to tour different habitat demonstration areas in the state game area. Visitors will discuss management implications with staff from the various partners collaborating with the Habitat Day.

    Habitat areas include a managed water structure for waterfowl, food plot development for deer, turkeys and pheasants, showcasing equipment needed for establishing and managing food plots and habitat for wildlife, as well as fruit tree pruning. Grassland management benefits pollinators, songbirds, many game species. Management methods discussed include: burning, brush removal, herbicide treatments, mowing and inter-seeding.

    This event gives the partnering organizations a chance to highlight their efforts in promoting wildlife in Michigan and showcase the values their organizations provide for Michigan hunters and wildlife enthusiasts.

    Participants will walk close to 2 miles over the course of the day. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, water bottles, hiking boots and clothing appropriate for being outdoors.

    The address and more event detail will be provided upon request or registration. Contact Anna Mitterling with questions at amitterling@mucc.org

  • On Friday, August 11th at 9 AM, we will be joining the NCCC Crew in the Pigeon River Country State Forest to complete a restoration project at Inspiration Point. We will be cutting down remaining trees in the area (aside from Hawthorne) up to about 6 ft in height. Loppers and handsaws will be used to cut the small trees and a stump treatment will be applied as well. A prescribed burn was conducted in the area this spring to knock down woody vegetation; volunteers will be cutting what the fire missed. 

    All tools, safety gear, water and lunch will be provided for volunteers as well as a free T-Shirt. Please contact stopp@mucc.org with any questions and RSVP below to volunteer for wildlife in the Pigeon River Country!
