SCI to install big game wells in the Mojave National Preserve.
The four wells in question are the Eagle, Watson, Caruthers and Lecyr wells. According to the Preserve, the wells must be converted in this order and work must be completed by the end of 2005. SCI has been working on restoring and maintaining water catchment systems (big game wells and small game "guzzlers") in the Preserve for several years.
SCI encourages its chapters and members, and other wildlife, conservation and sportsmen's groups in California to volunteer time and financial resources to help restore the wells in question.
For volunteer information, contact Andy Pauli from the California Department of Fish & Game, (760) 240-1372 or project coordinator Cliff McDonald, (760) 326-2935. McDonald is an SCI member from Needles, California, and has been instrumental in this effort to the water systems.
Donation checks should be made payable to "Safari Club International Foundation" and mailed to Safari Club Int. Foundation, c/o California Mojave Desert Wells Restoration Project, 4800 W. Gates Pass Road, Tucson, AZ 85745.
