USU Backcountry Hunters and Anglers

Fall 2018

November 10 2018 the Logan Ranger District of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest invited the community to join them for the Seeding and Shrub Planting project days to improve mule deer winter habitat in Green Canyon. I led the Utah State University chapter of Backcountry Hunters in Anglers To participate in giving back to the local community and improve the wildlife habitat! Volunteers helped by spreading sage, bitterbrush, chokecherry, serviceberry and snowberry seeds and planting mountain big sagebrush, mahogany, snowberry and bitterbrush seedlings. Thank you to the members of the USU BHA club that were able to attend this morning and all of the other volunteers. Projects like these are how we can help preserve our public lands.

Trout Unlimited  Cache Anglers Chapter

Summer 2018

Assisted the Cache Anglers Chapter or Trout Unlimited in putting on a kids camp event. Children were able to participate in finding aquatic invertebrate in the river then using tools to identify them. We then assisted the Utah Department of Wildlife Resources in electro fishing to show the children trout and their stomachs contents. The children were able to learn basic stream ecology and understand the importance of cold water habitat for native populations of fish and management of game fish.
