Over a dozen ConocoPhillips employees helped cut down trees and clear brush from the release area overlooking Potter Marsh. This area is where we release birds back to the wild. Over the past few years it has become overgrown with trees and brush and it has made it a little tough for them to maneuver through the opening.
Thanks to the ConocoPhillips who did an awesome job. Also, thanks to Alaska Industrial Hardware who donated tools and safety supplies and MacDonald Waste Industries who had fantastic service in such short notice.
All of the trees and brush that was removed was taken to the Anchorage Wood Lot for recycling.
