Wildlife Habitat Field Day Slated


The South Mountain Land Association will sponsor a free two-hour wildlife habitat field day on Saturday, Aug. 6.

Included in the event will be presentations from three national organizations—National Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever and Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA). The representatives will discuss creating good habitat for the three species.

The field day starts at 10 a.m.

Dale Butler, Jack Sorber and Chip Sorber will lead a presentation and a field tour.

John Picotti and Ross Piazza of Pheasants Forever will also lead a presentation.

John Miller, president of the Huckleberry Mountain Branch QDMA, will also talk.

Directors from the Susquehanna Branch QDMA will attend with a display.

A representative of Big Bucks.com is also expected to attend.

Refreshments will be supplied at the end of the event.

The location for the field day is the Sorber Mountain cabin property at the end of Sorber Mountain West Road.

Directions are as follows:

At the intersection of Rt. 118 and Rt. 29 near Pike’s Creek, go north on Rt. 29 for four miles. Turn left onto Sorber Mountain Road for two miles. Turn left onto Sorber Mountain West Road and follow for 0.5 mile to the dead end.

“The South Mountain Land Association is glad to partner with the representatives of these national organizations who are willing to share their knowledge of wildlife habitat to everyone who wants to learn how to have good wildlife habitat,” said Chip Sorber.
