Lehigh Valley Chapter Ruffed Grouse Society planting trees
The Ruffed Grouse Society's Lehigh Valley Chapter invites the public to join it for its Habitat Day Saturday, April 13, on State Game Lands 217 on the Blue Mountain.
Ruffed Grouse Society members and other volunteers will be planting young evergreen trees in an area that has been clear cut recently to benefit ruffed grouse as well as other wildlife like deer, rabbits and songbirds. The work is being supported through a $2,500 Drummer Fund Grant the chapter received from the national RGS.
Anyone interested in lending a hand should meet at 8 a.m. April 13, in the parking lot across from Boyer's Hardware, 130 Main St., Slatington. Coffee, donuts and a light lunch will be provided as part of the day.
