Turnbull Needs Helpers
The Spokane Chapter of the National Audubon Society is seeking volunteers for a work party at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge Saturday.
The project coincides with National Wildlife Refuge Week.
Since the first wildlife refuge was established by Theodore Roosevelt in 1903, the National Refuge System has grown to 92 million acres at more than 500 refuge sites. They range from a half acre to 20 million acres.
Refuges nearest to this area include Turnbull near Cheney, Little Pend Oreille east of Colville, Columbia near Othello, Umatilla and McNary near the Tri-Cities, Kootenai near Bonners Ferry and the Lee Metcalf and National Bison Range in Western Montana.
Volunteers for the Turnbull project will meet at the refuge at 9 a.m. to begin planting trees along Pine Creek. Info: 455-4462. , DataTimes
