Jersey Shore AWS Chapter Woodcock Habitat Project

May 22 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Come Get Involved!

The Jersey Shore chapter of the American Woodcock Society in partnership with NJ Fish and Wildlife have identified our Spring 2022 woodcock habitat project at Salem RiverWMA.

The NJ Fish and Wildlife team has begun the reclamation of a series of fields. They will be hydro axing a total of 7 acres.

Next steps would be to plant 200 silky dogwood seedlings to create staggered growth.,

The Jersey Shore chapter of the American Woodcock Society will assist by providing a group of volunteers to plant the silky dogwood seedlings. Then apply seedling protector tubes, bamboo stakes and wire ties so we can protect the seedlings as they mature.

We also would like to thank Animals & Gardens Unlimited (New Egypt, NJ) for donating to our habitat projects and helping offset costs.

Now all we need is you! Please note due to insurance regulations, you need to be an active member of the American Woodcock Society or the Ruffed Grouse Society.

(Times Approximate…Actual Times TBD)

Please consult New Jersey’s COVID-19 guidelines before attending events. For more, visit cdc.gov.
