  • OTG: Grayling State Forest Snowshoe Hare Habitat

    On Saturday, January 28th, we will be meeting at the Grayling State Forest DNR Field Office at 9AM to improve snowshoe hare habitat. This project involves hinge-cutting balsam fir and other brushy pine types to provide the dense cover that the hares need to survive the winter climate and escape from predators. There were signs of use of the hinge-cuts by snowshoe hares within just a couple of weeks after this event in prior years!

    Volunteers with adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including kevlar chaps, ear protection, eye protection, a hardhat, and gloves along with experience with hinge-cuts may utilize a chainsaw to hinge-cut trees ONLY less than 6" in diameter. Habitat hooks will also be used to allow for slow and controlled felling of the trees; this helps to keep the hinge in tact.

    Lunch will be provided by MUCC as well as a free T-Shirt and a free digital subscription to Michigan OutofDoors Magazine. Please RSVP to volunteer and to receive details before the event!
