UPDATE! This project was a huge success. We had some great volunteers come and help us remove three strands of barbed wire from a ridge where animals are migrating back and forth each year. Thanks again to everyone who came out to support the cause.
This project is now scheduled for August 26th! We'll be meeting at 7:30am in the Wilderness Church parking lot located at 110 N Jackson Ave. We will provide gloves, fencing pliers, eye protection, and will be serving lunch and drinks afterwards. If you have your own gear please feel free to bring it along. Please wear long pants, long sleeve shirts, and close toed shoes or boots as we will be working with barbed wire. Also invite all of your friends and family members. This projects should only take us a couple of hours depending on the volunteer turnout.
This area is along a large and critical migration corridor for both elk and deer. Last year we removed about 1.5 miles of old sheep fence on the west side of Fremont Ridge. There is about another mile of fencing, that needs to be removed. This migration route filters into the Luke Lynch Wildlife Area, just north of Pinedale, WY. We had a good turnout last year at the removal of the first section of fence. We had a great time and expect the same with this second section. It is a beautiful location and you won't want to miss out on this vital project.
