The California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) Upper Butte Basin Wildlife Area (UBBWA) has scheduled a cleanup and hunting blind maintenance day on Aug. 5 from 7 a.m. to noon. The wildlife area consists of Little Dry Creek and Llano Seco in Butte County and Howard Slough in Glenn County.
At last year’s event, UBBWA staff and approximately 30 volunteers cleaned hunting blinds and posted field markers in preparation for the upcoming waterfowl season. Activities this year will include cleaning hunting blinds, installing and painting area signage, and improving mobility-impaired hunting blinds. Volunteers should bring gloves, work boots and sunscreen. Water and insect repellent will be provided, as will a barbecue lunch hosted by the California Waterfowl Association.
Volunteers will meet at 7 a.m. at the UBBWA headquarters located at Howard Slough Wildlife Area, 9256 Highway 162, Butte City (95920). For more information, please call (530) 982-2169.
