Island Park Fence Removal
August 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join Henrys Fork Wildlife Alliance on Wednesday, August 18th for an active volunteer project to help facilitate wildlife movement in beautiful Island Park! The project will run from 10:00am to about 4pm. Volunteers will remove several sections of obsolete fence on U.S. Forest Service land just south of Raynolds Pass. Join us for a half or full day!
Barbed wire fences, like the old sheep allotment fence on U.S. Forest Service land near Raynolds Pass, are dangerous and disruptive to wildlife movement. Removing the fence and downed barbed wire will ensure that the meadow and sage brush on this section of USFS land are restored to their natural state and the seasonal movement of pronghorn, mule deer and elk is no longer disrupted.
This summer, on July 7th, HFWA volunteers helped remove a derelict barbed wire fence on private property, at the landowner’s request. We invite you to join us on August 18th to continue the impactful work by volunteers last month!
No experience is necessary. A wildlife-friendly fencing expert will be on hand to assist and there is a job for everyone. Lunch, snacks, drinks, gloves and necessary tools are all provided.
