Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The Morse Force Volunteers help Forterra with their wildlife program of property management at the Morse Wildlife Preserve and at the Maxine G. Morse Wildlife Conservancy in Graham, WA. Additionally, Morse Force Volunteer Docents help Tahoma Audubon Society (TAS) with their education program of guided tours and classes.
Morse Force Volunteers assist in the planning and implementation of various events and activities that take place at the Morse Wildlife Preserve (MWP) in Graham, WA. The 100 acre site features several habitat types, including wetlands, forests, and prairies. Events include monthly Second Sundays at Morse (April-Oct) from 10:00 am-4:00pm. Both Morse Wildlife Preserve (MWP) and the Maxine G. Morse Wildlife Conservancy (MGMNC), another 60 acre site which features habitat types including wetlands and forests, host on-demand guided tours for groups including schools and other environmentally-oriented organizations.
We would like to increase public access to MWP and MGMNC; hence, we are recruiting approximately 20 new Morse Force Volunteer Docents interested in nature education and to act as hosts to visitors on special days.
