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.
Mississippi Valley Conservancy regularly hosts public volunteer work days in an effort to complete ecological restorations and routine property management on our over 3,500 acres of land that we make available to the public for hunting, hiking, bird watching and low impact environmental recreation. These volunteer work days are a great way to get out and experience the coulee regions broad range of wild habitat types and gain some experience in land management and restoration. All equipment/tools and safety gear is provided by MVC and there are opportunities for carpooling to our properties from La Crosse. Please visit http://mississippivalleyconservancy.org/GetInvolved/HikesEvents.aspx for a list of upcoming volunteer opportunities and RSVP to Land Manager Levi Plath at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend a work day.
