Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge needs your help on Saturday April 17th. Please join the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge as part of their Earth Day vegetation efforts! Under the supervision of the refuge biologist, volunteers will plant a variety of 1 gallon native plants. This activity will expand and develop the local riparian forest structure, habitat, and forage opportunities for the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher, quail & other local and migratory birds. Shovels and gloves will be provided.
The USFWS will be conducting a native grass planting on April 10th. Native grasses and trees will be hand planted along a portion of the newly restored Fairbanks outflow. The native planting is an important part of the restoration process as native plants compete with exotic species, stabilize disturbed soils, and provide habitat for wildlife. Individuals need to be in good physical condition as planting requires bending, kneeling, and getting dirty. Please join the USFWS as they continue their restoration efforts at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.
Volunteer Work Type: Post & cable fence, sign replacement, route restoration.
