As part of the Pheasants Forever Hands on Habitat Day, over 30 people including several families joined in to help clean up the newly acquired 100-acre tract at the Tiger Lake Wildlife Management Area despite the intense winds and rain on Saturday April 23rd.
The crews removed nearly 2 miles of fence and hundreds of fence posts. In addition, the removal of undesireable brush was also started. Very shortly, the restoration of wetlands will begin and seeding of the property with native grasses and forbs will take place. Carver County Pheasants Forever sends a huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers that dedicated a part of their day to improving our local public habitat.
The Carver County chapter of Pheasants Forever is dedicating a tract of land in the Tiger Lake Complex, located just East of Tiger Lake and just north of Norwood Young America, in honor of long-time and founding CCPF member Glenn McPadden. This dedication is in recognition of Glenn’s lifetime of service and dedication to the development of local habitat and the traditions and sport of hunting. Glenn is a lifetime Carver County resident, veteran, and member of CCPF for over thirty-five years. While CCPF is excited to make this announcement, it is with mixed emotions as this dedication is happening on short notice because Glenn has been battling significant heath issues. This dedication was planned to ensure Glenn and his family can celebrate this occasion together.
A stone monument has been placed at this site in his honor. CCPF had planned to have a formal dedication ceremony at the site with Glenn, his family, and the community. However, the recent spike in COVID cases and the new restrictions on public gatherings has forced us to cancel the in-person dedication.
