Logan River Watershed Plan
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with the Cache Water District, Crockett Avenue Irrigation and the cities of Logan, North Logan and Hyde Park as the project sponsors, is proposing to partially fund through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act [Public Law (PL) 83-566], the Logan River Watershed Plan in Cache County, Utah. The plan will address flood control and flood protection, evaluate measures to reduce water loss and increase efficiency in the current irrigation delivery system and consider additional recreational facilities.[NRCS]
Cache Humane Society Feline Fix Fundraiser
The best use of limited resources is to assist with spay/neuter programs for owned cats.**
Cats can begin reproducing by the age of four months, with four to five litters in a season. To this end, the Bridgerland Audubon Society has assisted in a Feline Fix Fundraiser campaign for the Cache Humane Society, supporting free spay/neuter programs.

Many, many thanks to all who participated last December for the Logan Christmas Bird Count. Makenna Johnson completed the compilation and submitted it to the National Audubon website where a summary will be posted. Our site contains copies of the spreadsheet going back many years.
