On Saturday, July 25th, 2020 at 9:00 AM, the Wyoming Wildlife Federation, the Shoshone National Forest, and the Red Canyon Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation are hosting a volunteer fence removal project in the Wind River Mountain Range.
How Will This Help Wildlife?
Fence entanglements are an issue for migrating ungulates such as deer and elk. Removing this old barbed wire from our public lands improves habitat and makes it easier for those critters to move across the landscape.
All attendees will meet at the outhouse/parking area at the base of Forest Road 532 at 9:00 am. It will be about 17 miles west of Dubois up the Warm Springs Road.
After a quick briefing, everyone will travel to the project site near the junction of Forest Road 532 and 538 (Sheridan Basin Road) where we will all begin working.
What Should I Bring?
Volunteers should bring bear spray, fencing pliers, work gloves, rain gear, and water. Some extra supplies will be on site.
Lunch, water, and snacks will be provided.*
How Do I Join?
*Please note that due to ongoing coronavirus transmission in Fremont County, we will practice social distancing during this volunteer event and will ask you to wear a mask when working in close proximity to others.
