Sherman County Area Watershed Council
Types of Projects
Cost of Project: $895
Guzzlers collect rainwater for wildlife use. Small animal guzzlers are used by bats, birds, and small mammals. It is important to protect these from cattle, elk, and deer to improve longevity. Guzzlers should be placed near brushy cover where small animals will normally be. These can be important water sources in uplands.
Raptor Box Installation
Cost of Project: $4,233
The landowner installed raptor boxes for natural rodent control. These boxes attract owls and raptors to control rodent populations rather than using chemical controls. The boxes were placed far enough away from each other to avoid competition between raptors.
