Ruffed Grouse Society seeking help to maintain wildlife

The Ruffed Grouse Society seeks volunteers to hand plant gray dogwood along a stream to improve habitat for grouse, woodcock, and songbirds. “Grouse eat the berries of gray dogwood,” said Mary Hosmer, volunteer for the Ruffed Grouse Society. “Woodcock like to nest underneath dogwood shrubs, and some songbirds such as the chestnut-sided warbler build nests in small shrubs such as gray dogwood.”
