Bald Range Grassland – Work Party

 
With the help of a small grant from the Public Conservation Assistance Fund,
(Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation and province of B.C.), the Peachland
Sportsman’s Association is organizing a work party to begin some restoration
work on the Bald Range pocket grassland off Bear Main Forest Service Road
and restore some valuable ungulate winter range.

We’re hoping you can come out Saturday, June 8 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or so
to help remove some of the smaller trees that have encroached on the
grassland, and cut them up with Swede saws into lengths with which to build
modified check dams in some of the former trails that have become incised
down the hill. That will help to slow the flow of water that continues to erode
those trails deeper and deeper into the hillside and ultimately cause those
gulleys to be filled in instead of worsening.
 
You don’t need to be young and strong to come out and help, though we will
need some strong young arms and legs for some of the work.
I do need to know who is able to join us, (in part for lunch arrangements)
so please reply as soon as you can to let me know if you can come out and
help.
 
If you have chainsaw safety certification and are able to join us, please
let me know, as it would be helpful to have some of the trees removed using
a chainsaw, but we don’t want anyone using one who doesn’t have the
certification. We will need some Swede saws, rakes, shovels etc.
 
I will reply with instructions about where to meet etc., when I hear back
from you.
 
Thanx very much.
