Seasonal Park Maintainer
May 2006- September 2006
My responsibilities included, clearing water vegetation and tagging geese, general landscaping and structure maintenance. Tagging geese assured that the wildlife division could recognize seasonal geese and become aware of geese that weren’t migrating. This would later be recorded and hunters would be informed of where they could and couldn’t hunt based on the geese population. They were not supposed to shoot the seasonal geese because it would disrupt the natural pattern of the birds.
