Haystack Dirt Tank Redevelopment Project

I wanted to share the recent results of the Haystack dirt tank redevelopment project. This project is on the O bar C Ranch in Tonto Basin. Every summer, O bar C ranchers Teri Cline and her brother Lonnie have hauled water for the areas wildlife, until now. As this part of the ranch was devoid of any perennial water, this project will be great benefit to not only the Mule Deer but to all the desert animals. This is a prime example of how the Mule Deer Foundation is funding critical conservation projects, through the Chapters Rewards Program. A special “Thank You” to our valued volunteers, MDF, AZGFD, Black Mountain Excavating and the O bar C Ranch for their combined efforts.
