Tree Thinning Project - Volunteers Needed
The Arizona Elk Society Sawyers are currently working on a tree thinning project near Parks, which is located between Flagstaff and Williams, just off of I-40. The main goal of this project is to create clear and accessible migration corridors for elk and antelope, allowing them to navigate their historic routes. Following the completion of the sawyer project, the Arizona Antelope Foundation will be relocating and reconstructing a fence in order to accommodate antelope travel in the area. The entire project is expected to take approximately 1-2 weekends to finish.
We are currently seeking volunteers who are willing to assist with various tasks, including:
1. Support the sawyers by helping to lop and scatter tree debris, as well as moving equipment.
2. Assist with brush cutting to further improve the area.
3. Contribute to the main camp by helping with cooking and managing the kitchen area.
Thank You for Making the Northern Arizona Peaks Chapter Banquet a Success!
On July 15th, the Arizona Elk Society's Northern Arizona Peaks Chapter hosted the 5th annual banquet! The event was a huge success, thanks to the overwhelming support and involvement of all those who attended. We are truly grateful for your presence and the positive impact you had on our mission. Your participation not only made the night a memorable one but also contributed significantly to furthering our mission to conserve and enhance elk habitat and educate the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts.
We would also like to extend a special thank you to the volunteers who selflessly dedicated their time and effort to make the evening a success. These incredible individuals worked tirelessly behind the scenes, ensuring that everything ran smoothly and that our guests had a wonderful experience.
It is important to note that the net proceeds from this event will stay in the area, directly benefiting the local community and the surrounding elk habitat. The support we received during the banquet will enable us to undertake crucial conservation projects, educate hunters and non-hunters alike, and continue our efforts to conserve Arizona's natural beauty for generations to come.
Thank you all for joining us and for being champions of the Arizona Elk Society's mission. Together, we are making a difference and ensuring a brighter future for our wildlife and outdoor heritage.
