$500 Award Offered For Backyard Habitat


Whether you provide cover for songbirds or forage for elk, a clean stream for trout or a nest site for geese, the Spokane Chapter of Safari Club International wants you to enter its second annual Wildlife Enhancement award competition.

“This can be something people have done in their back yard or their back 40,” said program chairman Alan Knott. “We’re accepting entries from Eastern Washington and North Idaho.”

People who have made special provisions for wildlife simply have to contact Knott. Arrangements will be made to inspect and photograph the enhancements.

Judges will determine a winner who will receive a $500 prize at the chapter’s annual fund-raising banquet in February.

The winning entry last year was a wetland area near Spangle that had been enhanced and fenced for protection from cattle, Knott said.
