What is Endothall?

Thanks KID for making this a summer with irrigation water!

If you dont know already, nature photography is a big hobby of mine. I also love seeing photos from our local professionals and amateurs, especially at our local events! 

Since today is #NaturePhotographyDay 📷💐, I asked our staff to send me their own nature photos. And once again, they did not disappoint!

If youd like to share some of your nature photos, I would absolutely love to see them! Post them in the comments ⬇️

🐿🐀 Mice, moles, badgers and ground squirrels...oh my! Not exactly lions, tigers or bears, but even the small cute ones need to be taken seriously because they can cause some serious damage! 

In fact, not only can they be a menace to your yard, burrowing animals are a big reason for canal failures in the Western United States.

If you see any burrowing activity on or near canals, please report it as soon as possible by using the link below or by calling:

Woodchucks were how I made ammo money as a boy. Dairy farmers would pay $.15 for each chuck we took out of his pastures. Chuck holes can cause a cow to break a leg. Good targets for a .22 and, if you knew how to whistle loudly, they would stand up to see what the noise was. BAM!!!
