More than 30 volunteers gathered to celebrate elk, hunting and conservation at the 2014 Utah Rendezvous. They gathered in the Pine Valley Mountains north of St. George. Although the area is beautiful and boasts prime big game habitat, water is always a concern. The average rainfall is a mere 12.6 inches a year.
Other than the food, family, laughter, more food and fun that are part of every rendezvous, participants also rolled up their sleeves on the Pine Valley Ranger District of the Dixie National Forest and dug in to place a new water guzzler on an old, non-working guzzler site. (A guzzler is a contraption that captures and stores water for wildlife.) They also did some fence work to enhance the area.
Thanks to our Utah volunteers for making a difference in elk country!
