Members of Eyes in the Woods, a volunteer conservation organization, is looking for volunteers to clean litter on private timberlands this month.
The group is leading events at:
Olympic Peninsula: Meet at 9 a.m. Saturday at the state Department of Fish and Wildlife Region 6 office, 48 Devonshire Road, Montesano. The work, to be done on land managed by Weyerhaeuser and the Campbell Group, will continue until 6 p.m.
Mount St. Helens: Meet at 9 a.m. on June 28 at Drews Grocery on Highway 504 in Toutle. Volunteers will work on Weyerhaeuser’s Mount St. Helens Tree Farm through 6 p.m.
Eyes in the Woods volunteers play an important role in wildlife management by monitoring hunter activity, staffing check stations and posting signs, said Dave Ware, state game manager, in a DFW news release.
These cleanups are another example of that help, Ware said.
“Access to private lands is a major issue for hunters and this department. This is a way for hunters to show their appreciation for landowners who open their lands for outdoor recreation,” he said in the release.
