MDF and Granite Seed Company announce partnership to benefit members and habitat
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Mule Deer Foundation and Granite Seed Company have formed a unique partnership that will offer MDF members free consultations and the opportunity to acquire professional-grade native seed from Granite Seed. The goal is to help enhance and restore mule deer habitat on privately-owned land.
Habitat loss or degradation is one of the major causes for the decline of mule deer and black-tailed deer populations. These deer often spend a considerable amount of time on private lands throughout the year. In many cases, this land provides vital winter habitat and is crucial to survival.
Miles Moretti, MDF President/CEO said, “MDF’s working motto of ‘Saving Deer One Acre at a Time’ can only be accomplished by aggressive habitat improvement. We at MDF are excited about our partnership with Granite Seed. This truly is an added benefit for our members and will certainly further MDF objectives. Our members will be able to receive professional products and advice on what to plant to attract deer and improve their habitat.”
Granite Seed’s President Bill Agnew stated, “MDF’s goals align perfectly with ours. At Granite Seed our mission is to provide native seed and erosion control products for the conservation of land and preservation of wildlife. We look forward to working with MDF members and applying our vast range management experience to address landowners’ specific habitat goals.”
