HYRUM, Utah (AP) -- Volunteers are helping the Division of Wildlife provide food for winter-starved deer on the Millville Face Wildlife Management Area in northern Utah.

Over the weekend they planted 2,000 bitter brush plants near Hyrum and will plant 8,000 more in the coming weeks. The project is in response to this year's tough winter for grazing wildlife.

The DWR says the plants should provide a good winter food source for years to come. Volunteers are welcome to help out.

The plants were grown by a volunteer in a Logan greenhouse.
