In the past, members had to work 15 hours per year on DCCL projects to get 15 birds. That rule is still in play. But, there is a second option now available. A member can work 10 hours per year and earn 10 birds. However, working 11-14 hours is still considered 10 hours. Keep in mind that a family membership allows immediate family members to combine work hours for birds.
Unfortunately, we had some winter storm damage this year at the farm. Some poles were tipped and some netting was ripped. It can all be repaired, but we will need some labor this spring to get things back in shape. We have ordered 1,000 Manchurian cross birds form MacFarlane’s to be delivered the week of May 8. A couple of pens need to be tilled and seeded with new vegetation so that we can get rid of some of the thistles that are taking over. Don’t wait until July to come out; much help is needed in May and June.
As mentioned above, this is our first attempt at mass electronic communication with members. There are more events to be scheduled this spring and we will let you know via your electronic device. We know that we will have to work some things out with everyone to make this a success. Let us know what you think.
Conserve Now That The Future May Live!!
