Continue the celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day into the next weekend by helping Kankakee Fish & Wildlife Area prepare for waterfowl hunting season at the annual dressing of the blinds, Saturday, Sept. 30.
Volunteers will work in groups to help improve waterfowl hunting and viewing by preparing corn and marsh blinds. Preparations include covering blinds in the corn fields and marshes with corn stalks and marsh plants. All ages are welcome, and you are invited to join for a few hours, or the whole workday.
Volunteers will meet staff at the Kankakee FWA office at 8 a.m. CT and caravan about a mile to the blinds dressing site. You are welcome to bring a group or come alone. Staff will organize volunteers into work teams of four.
