Idaho Fish and Game Seeks Volunteers for Tree Planting on Craig Mountain

This is a daily event, running from May 13, 2013 through May 17, 2013. Idaho Fish & Game (208) 799-5010
Idaho Fish and Game is seeking volunteers to help plant tree species that historically dominated the Craig Mountain Swamp Creek area. Over 14,000 Ponderosa Pine, Douglas Fir, and Western Larch will replace species such as Lodgepole and Grand Fir that were removed from the area by last year’s timber sale. “We are working on continued management of forest health on the mountain,” says Justin Barrett, Craig Mountain Manager. “Thinning out species such as Lodgepole and Grand Fir and replanting other species will allow for a healthier plant community with greater diversity and value for wildlife.”

Volunteers are needed to work during the week day from Monday, May 13th-Friday, May 17th. Transportation can be arranged from our regional office each day. Overnight camping near Benton Meadows is also an option for those interested.

Anyone interested should be in good physical condition and willing to work in adverse weather conditions. Lunch, planting tools and training will be provided. Volunteers should bring gloves, rain gear, good boots, water, and weather/work appropriate clothing.

Contact the Regional Fish and Game office at (208) 799-5010 for more information or to sign-up for this project.
