These photos were taken in late May and it shows staff from ACA Lethbridge planting the shrubs that Chinook PF purchased to establish a multi-row shelterbelt at the Ross Creek Conservation Site.
Chinook Pheasants Forever received a grant in the amount of $6100 from ACA’s Conservation, Community and Education grants program. The shrubs planted were about 70% thorny buffaloberry and 30% caragana.
Weir Construction was hired to water the shrubs from mid-July to early September and Chinook PF partnered with the Medicine Hat Fish & Game Association to pay for the watering.
This is a multi-year program to establish a shelterbelt for the benefit of song birds and upland birds.
