It’s been awhile since I posted a write about the good post. This is a series started by Kristine at the Hunt Smart, Think Safety blog. In this series outdoor bloggers are challenged to write posts about the good things hunters and hunting organizations do to promote our heritage and in the efforts of wildlife and habitat conservation.
I am in the middle of preparing for an interview I will be conducting with Richard Worden for my new series “The Outdoor Interview”. Mr. Worden is on the National Board of Director serving as Sponsorships Chairman of Hunters Helping Kids he also serves as HHK - NNY Chapter President.
All over North America there are large and smaller organizations that are dedicated to get more people into hunting and fishing, or to wildlife and nature conservation. While most are aware of the larger national organizations there are also many local organizations and chapters of large organization in your area. These organizations and chapters do a great job of addressing local concerns.
Organizations are always looking for members and volunteers assisting them in their many tasks. Getting involved is a very satisfactory experience on so many levels not least the knowledge that you did something good for our heritage, wildlife, environment and society.
Last week a few friends and I decided that we will head ou to the Pitt Marsh , our local duck hunting area, to do some habitat enhancement and ditch clean up, hang nesting boxes for mallards, redheads and widgeon ducks that are most commonly found in the marsh. This activity will not only enhance the habitat quality and attract wildlife put is a good promotion for hunters. The Pitt Marsh is a favorite walking and hiking location for many town and city people, and they all will see that hunters (we will be dressed in camouflage for exactly that purpose) are working hard to keep the Marsh clean and attractive for many different wildlife species.
