CDFW Cancels April 25 Clean-Up Day at the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area; Annual Hunter Outreach Meeting Postponed

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has cancelled the annual, volunteer clean-up day scheduled for April 25, 2020, at the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area in Butte County as a result of government orders and best practices to combat the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

CDFW will reschedule the legally mandated, annual hunter outreach meeting on North Central Region Type A Wildlife Areas – which includes Gray Lodge and the Upper Butte Basin Wildlife Area Complex (Little Dry Creek Unit, Howard Slough Unit, and Llano Seco Unit) – originally scheduled for April 25, 2020 – once health directives and conditions allow.

At this time, both the Gray Lodge Wildlife Area and the Upper Butte Basin Wildlife Area Complex remain open to public use – fishing, hunting, birding, hiking, etc. – as long as social distancing of 6 feet or more can be implemented. Offices at those lands are closed to the public.
