Volunteers needed to rehab burn area
• Utah wildlife officials are asking for public help to rehabilitate a wildlife preserve near Moab that was burned in a human-caused fire.
Nearly half of the Scott M. Matheson Wetlands Preserve on the outskirts of Moab was charred during a recent fire. Much-needed wildlife habitat for a variety of species was destroyed.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, which owns the preserve jointly with The Nature Conservancy, will sponsor a tree and shrub planting on Nov. 22. Seedlings, tools and equipment will be supplied but more volunteers are needed.
Work will begin at 9 a.m. and finish around 1 p.m. Volunteers are asked to bring work gloves, a shovel, beverages and lunch.
