Upper Delta WMA Shooting Range Receives New Sod

September 17, 2010

The Upper Delta Wildlife Management Area (WMA) Shooting Range near Stockton, Ala., in Baldwin Co., has new sod thanks to a partnership between the Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF) and local Boy Scouts and volunteers.

Recently scouts from Troop 47 Fairhope, Troop 28 Mobile, Troop 78 Bay Minette, Troop 87 Daphne, Troop 76 Mobile, their scout leaders and local volunteers assisted WFF staff install new sod between the shooting line and targets. The sod was installed to improve aesthetics and as part of standard shooting range lead management practices. The Stockton Volunteer Fire Department also donated their resources to water the sod twice since it was laid in August.

WFF Assistant Supervisor and project coordinator Steve Barnett said the scouts helped install the half-acre of sod in three hours during the grueling South Alabama heat.
